Oneiric Hotel is an artistic re-enactment of a few successful scientific sleep experiments that managed to induce lucid gravitational dreams, where the dreamers could consciously fly, fall, levitate or perform other gravity-defying activities. In the project these experiments are reconstructed as custom-made experiences and catapulted from the scientific labs into the bedrooms of the public, such as homes, hotels and other spaces open for intimate and poetic exploration.

Oneiric Hotel provides the public with unique sleepover experience packages. Equipped with dream-inducing contraptions and techniques, everybody was able to take a nap in sleep capsules and re-test the dream experiments in their own way. The sleepers — scientific ‘subjects’ — became the curators of their own oneiric experiments.

Oneiric Hotel invites visitors to book a 2 hours time slot to experiment with their dreams.

Julijonas Urbonas is an artist, designer, researcher, engineer, writer, Vice-Rector for Art at the Vilnius Academy of Arts in Vilnius, and PhD student in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art, London.
