The exploration of the bed as a socially produced space prompts many questions about the subjectivity of lived experience, dependency, and, representations within a space. How do we experience beds differently? Who is granted access to certain beds? What emotions do certain beds conjure? In and Out of Bed is a standalone collection of photographs that we produce as a response to these questions from our own embodied experiences in the bed that we share. In and Out of Bed is a standalone collection that we envision being exhibited in a physical or online art gallery.

We approached this project with both a primary and secondary methodology. We wanted to capture our experience of the bed from two predominant theoretical frameworks: communicating personal embodied experiences (inspired by Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Jason Farman), and exploring how we produce spaces through patterns of social activity (inspired by Henri Lefebvre). 

We posted the entire collection up for viewing now right here.
