The current volume is the outgrowth of a pedagogical effort for the same-titled studio, conducted in the School of Architecture, University of Thessaly, during the autumn-winter semester, 2015-2016.
The edition documents the traces, route, dislocations, anachronisms and the outcomes of an academic survey. The initial point for this were curiosity and research, editing, assembling, redesigning found material -- aiming at a design compilation on Hypnos Labor. The diverse share along with the exhaustive documentation of contemporary experiences of sleep became the main focus of this studio.
The design of the edition addresses the research material as a total artwork, leaning to a curatorial gesture for the educational practice, in the form of a linear assembly, a stop-motion movie or a visual essay.
Hypnos Labor was supported by Onassis foundation and produced in 1-28 limited edition books, as an official participation in the exhibition Hypnos Project, at the Cultural Center of Onassis Foundation, Athens, April-June 2016.
