A VR Artwork by Jeanne Susplugas

I will sleep when I’m dead is a dive into the brain, a navigation by sight amongst neurons and synapses.

The visitor gets lost in an infinite maze and crosses paths with «thoughts» materialized by drawings looking like pictograms. An intimate head to head, closely psychoanalytical, that introduces to an intense and a unique experience. An artistic project including scientific dimensions.

« I will sleep when I’m dead » several words borrowed from Bon Jovi reveal a lot about her work, about the brain and our thoughts that are so difficult to tame. Submerged in the brain, tortuous, sometimes foggy, the audience will have to follow, at their convenience several journeys related to their thoughts.

According to a bundle of «narratives», everyone will be free to experience their own mental journey. This mapping of «universal» thoughts goes from everyday thoughts to deep, sometimes pervasive thoughts that make us evolve when they don’t prevent us from moving forward or falling asleep, I will sleep when I’m dead.
