The art of sleeping
Love art as much as you love
sleeping? Well, now you can enjoy both at the same time.
Thanks to the Hayward Gallery in
London's Southbank Centre, visitors can encounter a whole new
exhibition experience - an overnight's stay on two robotic beds.
Two people will be invited each night to spend an evening moving
through Belgian artist Carsten Holler's art display
Travelling in slow motion, at speeds
of less than a metre per minute, a laser attached to the beds will
search the floor avoiding obstacles as it moves. The exhibition,
which runs from June 10 through to September 6, is designed to
bring uncertainty to the sleepers so that they won't be sure that
the place they fall asleep in will be the same place they wake up
