 SLEEPWALK

 Installation with multimedia and sensors, 2021

 

 The project “Sleepwalk” invites the audience to experience a constructed situation created by two artists, Cao and Jeesoo Hong, and co-produced by SPACE IN TRANSITION in Wuppertal. Space in transition is a small exhibition space for solitary visits, and it is an experiment on how art infrastructure may be changed under COVID-19 restrictions and beyond them. The project consists of a tiny space and a specifically developed web interface for booking and accessing the room.

 Inside the small 3 m² room, Cao installed a photo and her notebook, and Jeesoo Hong set up the sound installation for one visitor.

 Once a person books a timeslot of an hour on the website (spaceintransition.com), this person gets a slide button as a key to access this space. All installations are connected to each sensor which works depending on the visitor's behavior. The person would experience the automatic situation and the room itself as a hiding place to wait for something to happen through hidden speakers behind a Photo, inside the door gab, and at the window frame.
