The Subjects

Now that I am allowed to talk about it, I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be part of The Subjects, a residency in Adelaide’s state-of-the-art sleep lab from February 9-16, organised through ANAT. Along with three others I will be deprived of sleep, clocks and natural light and watched constantly for evidence I am developing psychosis and/or brilliance. There will be NO COFFEE. I am already cutting down.

There is some content popping up on the site, so keep checking in. Here’s a post from me on curiosity, my unscientific mind, and George Orwell.

You’ll be able to ask questions via the blog during the residency and I’ll be updating daily, as well as trying to write, function, and coexist with the other artists: Thom Buchanan, Fee Plumley, and Sean Williams. Not to mention The Scientists.

Not these ones.

Afterwards we’ll all talk about it at Adelaide Writer’s Week. What a fun way to start the year.

    three days without sleep is about my record too. never having been entirely of this world to begin with, i am not sure i noticed a huge difference. but without their own room, dreams tend to creep into the waking.

    i’m pleased you will be personally haunting my daymares, anyway. bring the family! bring the unicycle!
