Bedtime Stories

was created in Treasure Hill Arts Village Residency, Taipei, 2012

Artist: Nung-Hsin Hu & Pila Rusjan

The project springs from two artists’ own experience of loneliness in a foreign country and at the same time discusses the paradoxical situation of increasing solitude in a world characterized by intense communication aided by modern technologies. The interactive book and bed make up the audiovisual installation that creates an intimate and pleasant atmosphere, where visitors can browse through the book and choose their bedtime story. The stories that are projected onto the bed are presented in different forms and blur the line between reality and dreams.(Project created during the residency period in Treasure Hill Arts Village 2012 winer)
