Maryam Ashkanian, with the Sleeping Series collection, entrapped the world of dreams and subconscious sewing the dreamers’ faces, surprised in their inner expressions during the night, on soft pillows. She embroiders individuals deep in sleep onto the surface of her handmade pillows, matching the size of her subjects to the area one would physically occupy if they took a nap on her work.
The stitched sleepers lay sprawled in different configurations on the white background, some with their arms outstretched, whiles others hold them tucked into their bodies. These sculptures are a way to access the wide subject matter of dreams, a place where Ashkanian feels we can observe ourselves in one of the purest forms.

Mr. Ku definitely has channeled his inner-child and realized that, like us, using a normal sleeping pillow will not suffice for ultimate victory. Although these weapons look a little weak for attack, but we will take their word for it. (via)
