Hibernation is not the same as sleeping. It’s more akin to falling into a coma. Scientists speculate that many animals must raise their heart rate and body temperature (coming out of hibernation) to sleep, to rest.
DREAMS OF WE WHO WAKE TO SLEEP, Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett, January 2019. Prismatic offcuts from a Calgary street sign shop, clear acrylic, wood supports.
This sign served as a manifesto for The Hibernation Project, hiding in the dark and illuminating when hit by headlights or flashlights. Started in secrecy, we used images of this artwork to invite other artists to participate.
