About Supine Horizons

Supine Horizons is an immersive site for rest, resistance and renewal, featuring synthesized sound and projected visuals by local multimedia artist Gralin Hughes, Jr. (Television Sky).

Supine Horizons seeks to dismantle the idea that rest is solely a luxury or a privilege and aims to subvert capitalist ideals of “hustle” and “grind” culture, to instead center rest as the ultimate form of self-care and collective healing, particularly for the Black community.

Supine Horizons is generously supported by The Barra Foundation.
