This is another Julijonas Urbonas’s fascinating artistic project inspired by dream lab research. This artistic production was exhibited in Lisbon and Lithuania. The original project website is no longer available. The author’s amazing art projects, many of them related to dreams, are available on his website.
Oneiric Hotel from Julijonas Urbonas on Vimeo. “Oneiric Hotel is a pop-up hotel equipped with special dream-directing equipment — an artistic reconstruction of the few successful psychophysiological sleep experiments that managed to induce and direct lucid dreams. Oneiric Hotel reenacted these experiments as bespoke experiences for the visitors, transposed from the scientific laboratory to the set of a pop-up hotel. Equipped with dream-inducing contraptions and techniques, the public was invited to take a nap in sleep capsules, entering into the dream experiments in their own way. The ‘scientific subjects’ became the designers of their own oneiric experiments.”
