Where the Samples Sleep (2013)

Lab Equiptment, Ceramics, Resin, Fabrics

 

This is an installation that plays with the feeling of comfort and discomfort by combinging the sterile environment of a research lab with the cozy textiles that make up a human being's bed.  The patients are put in familar social situations.  Influenced by personal research work, Dez's work transfoms the ambiguous patient sample into a person who could be sleeping in your guest room.  The materials become visually under these circumstances, confusing hospital robes with comfortable sleepwear.
