Slow Wave: Seeing Sleep 
September 25-27, 2009 

$15 / $10 / $5

Three days of installations, films, music, presentation and discussion that investigate the devices and forms through which we seek to decode the enigma of sleep. The works on display employ both poetic and empirical channels and range from Andy Warhol's five-hour film Sleepto the historic polysomnograms that first captured REM sleep to Fernando Orellana and Brendan Burn's Sleep Waking, in which a customized robot moves in response to the sleeping artists' brainwaves.

Snag your spot to sleep over in EMPAC under Andy Warhol's Sleep on Saturday night! Space is limited; please email John Cook, EMPAC Box Office Manager [], to reserve your ticket.
