Our Own Sleep by Muda Mathis & Sus Zwick
Sleep comes from "slap" and is related to the word "slack“. Sleep means not being productive in the material sense.To sleep means to do nothing. Hit the sack also means going to "sleep".Sleep is like sheep, sleep is like sheep. Sleep is individual anarchy.
There is something strange about the calm of sleepers. In sleep, we are vulnerable and alone, finally alone. Sleep is a mysterious state. Sleep smells of the body, of base human needs, it's so un-modern, unreasonable, out of control. Sleep is individual anarchy.
Sleep is more than a break a rest for the brain. Sleep is more than shifting from short-term to long-term memory. Sleep is the condition for waking up. And what does the body know that the mind doesn't? We sleep, we sleep for a better world.
I mean sleep as a revolutionary practice. And I say, yes, money should sleep. I say, yes, control should sleep. I say, yes, fear and faint-heartedness and hiccups should sleep, and I say, yes, habits should sleep.
Les Reines Prochaines, 2014
