Sleeping People Embroidered Onto Handmade Pillows by Maryam Ashkanian

April 30, 2017

Kate Sierzputowski

Iranian artist Maryam Ashkanian embroiders individuals deep in sleep onto the surface of her handmade pillows, matching the size of her subjects to the area one would physically occupy if they took a nap on her work. The stitched sleepers lay sprawled in different configurations on the white background, some with their arms outstretched, whiles others hold them tucked into their bodies. These sculptures are a way to access the wide subject matter of dreams, a place where Ashkanian feels we can observe ourselves in one of the purest forms. You can see more of her sculptures on her Instagram and Twitter. (via Ignant)

Pillows You Can Write On by Veinticuatrodientes

Note Me Pillows by Veinticuatrodientes are pillows you can write on. Messages can be erased by running the pillow under cold water. At our house the pillow would say “Please don’t sit here until the dog has been walked. I love you and you’re cute.” (via mocoloco)

Clever and surprisingly elegant screensaver that shows people sleeping and wakes them up when you jiggle the mouse.
