I am trying to break the economic exile I have found myself in, as an artist, unable to work for free, without funding.
Last year, in the midst of another economic crisis, I was offered the opportunity to participate in an experiment in the sleep lab at the University of Lincoln.
I was paid £50 worth of Amazon vouchers merely for sleeping in a laboratory and having my brain waves measured for two nights.
I have six tracks created from my sleeping brain waves, and am at the stage where this would form a sound art installation.
I’m researching How Art Made Pop, which details how UK art school graduates became pop and rock icons, which has provided me with a few ideas about how this might develop.
