Sleeping Productivity & Stealing from Myself

While our lives today revolve around packed schedules, we still need to spend a third of our lifetime sleeping. Being a restless sleeper himself, Dion Soethoudt has come up with two ideas to turn the energy spent on resting into productive energy. Physical night-time activity, your tossing and turning, can be translated into sculptural objects using Dion’s installation ‘Sleeping Productivity’. The creative ideas that bubble up freely in dreams can be channelled if you let yourself be inspired by the irrational connections your brain makes when unchecked by the conscious ego that regulates the thoughts by day. His dream book ‘Stealing From Myself’ serves as a first step towards an ego-free design method.
