The Chronarium Sleep Lab, a FutureEverything commission, was developed by London based spatial Laboratory Loop.pH, for FutureEverything Singapore. It explored the role of public space in becoming a shared resource for health and wellbeing in the city.
The installation presents an immersive audiovisual environment, with a soundtrack developed by acclaimed artist and composer Anna Meredith, that totally transforms its location into a restorative, calm and contemplative experience.
People living today sleep significantly less than generations before with sleep disorders on the rise, costing the economy billions. We are only just beginning to understand the impact that sleep disorders have on people’s lives and society at large. With the quantity and quality of sleep being constantly challenged by round the clock communications and globalised business, it’s becoming increasingly important to improve the quality of our resting time and develop the necessary skills for sleep.
I was Executive Producer, curator and commissioner of this project.
