Our sleeping habits shape our lives and relationships when we're awake.

We spend about one third of our lives in bed, but because we are generally not conscious, we give little thought to the implications of our time in this space for our relationships and general experiences. What does it mean to be in bed? What is our relationship to being in bed? And what does it mean to share a bed with another person? Or to stop sharing it?

Dream Suite investigates our activities in and around our beds and their signifigance. Whether we engage in play, intimacy, frustration, worry, dreaming, or deep problem solving, our time in bed greatly influences the rest of our lives. Moreover, our thoughts about being in bed shape our feelings about ourselves.
