As a second part of A Punkarchaeology of Sleep, the woven research explores the economy of sleep from a practical and digital lens: sleep apps.
As humans, we naturally associate a certain reliability into technology–isn’t it? Unreliable but cheap, sleep apps accompany the relentless nights of whom, affected by insomnia and not able to afford clinics, revolves to their phones to find answers to their painfully sleepless nights.
Woven Sleep enhances the flaws of the system through a physical experience of making and touching the data of the sleep apps on woven charts.
Will the repetitive movement involved in the process help the insomniac ? Will the touch of the soft wool? Can craft balance the digital realm?
