These designs are from the Safe Sopor installation by Natalya Hughes, the 2018 UTS Library Artist-in-Residence. Natalya’s residency at the UTS Library revolved around the ‘sleep zone’ under the Library’s rear stairs. Natalya had always been intrigued by this unusual space and its generally male dominated gender demographic. Her re-imagining of the space incorporates decorative components including wallpaper, carpet and bean-bags with the aim of creating a more inclusive resting area. During the residency, Natalya worked in the Library's Special Collections Room to paint the watercolour motifs that feature in the final designs of the wall-paper and bean bags. These motifs are things known to be soporific (to cause sleepiness).
