SLEEPING SELFIE BEAUTIES
Perform live. Always on. This is the motto of modern society.
Our protagonists actively frame themselves on camera to perform one of the last private, unconscious and un-surveiled act in modern society – their own sleep.
An uncontrolled insight into their rooms and private life, Sleepingsquad is a multi-channel video installation which processes live-stream video of people sleeping on social media.
