STORY

It is believed that shutting out light allows people to achieve a deeper level of sleep. During air travel, many sleeping masks are being used to block out light when sleeping. These ‘Awakening Goggles’ are a sleeping mask designed to symbolically make the vision of Palestinian women travel the world and catalyze a broader and more open view, while at the same time trying to prevent people to cover their eyes in relation to the conflict situation in Palestine.

The embroidery is realized by (mostly deaf) women working at the Open Studio of the Red Cressent Hospital in Khan Younis (Gaza). Their own eyes are depicted on these sleeping masks, imagining to see beyond the walls of the Gaza strip.
