A Hypnagogic (Ritual) Chamber
Dozing off was a site-specific audio installation made in the derelict hospital of Ronse. The work is inspired by anesthetics, a loss of control, and hypnagogic states that accompany surgical procedures.
Loudspeakers were embedded in an authentic operation table. Subwoofers were integrated to work with the existing dilapidated architecture, causing the broken windows of the operation room to reverberate and pulsate with tin foil membranes. Creating the illusion the room itself comes to life.
