Meet Ayden LeRoux, an interdisciplinary artist and writer. Ayden is joining our crew from New York. More examples of her work can be found at http://www.aydenleroux.com/.

Here you will find pictures from her Pillow Book project. Pillow Book is an ongoing series of videos that record the artist performing the act of making an unidentified bed paired with a vignette that explores the physical, emotional, subconscious and spatial influence of that particular bed. Pillow Book is a fragmented autobiography, born out of research on the practice of 10th century Japanese courtesans like Sei Shonangon who kept diaries of their lovers in a drawer in a wooden pillow.
