Labor of Sleep, 2017/2020
30 seconds video | sound
The video is an impossible sleeping exercise and an excerpt from the video piece 'Labor of Sleep, Have you been able to change your habits?? (2017)'. The original video work - commissioned by the Whitney Museum of American Art (Sunrise/Sunset Commission) - examines the status of sleep within the tempo of present-day capitalism and critically engages with the rhetoric of technologically supported self-optimization.
