Beds for Extended Space Travel
The Prompt: Design a Piece of Furniture
First, I needed to understand the existing state of space and what ships currently look like.
Next, came understanding how other artists had already conceptualized space and the tools used.
Finally, what does an idealized version of space look like for me?
The main issue with sleeping in Zero Gravity is floating away from the bed. Could I help create ways of providing micro gravity to improve sleep and remove some of the muscle degradation?
A sleeping bag that can be spun to provide micro gravity. Once spinning, the large windows polarize to decrease light changes as the sun rises every 90 minutes while at ISS orbit height.
