Paraformance [06]: The Nappening

An Exploration of Privately Owned Public Open Space

Paraformance [06]: The Nappening

Time: 2:00 – 4:00 PM
Location: 55 Second Street
(1-877-YO-REBAR for more information)

Rebar kicks off the spring season of COMMONspace by exploring the role of public space in supporting the physical needs of the overworked, over-caffeinated downtown population. The Nappening will create a safe and comfortable indoor snoozing environment with attendants standing by to wake you for your next meeting, fostering an emergent sleep event in the midst of the workday. By repurposing architectural spaces designed around economic activity, the Nappening broadens the definition of prosperity and initiates a grass-roots claim on new spatial and social territory. So skip that second double shot and turn off your phone—because sometimes a good nap is all you need.

Naps last 20 minutes and naptimes available are:
2:00 – 2:20 PM
2:30 – 2:50 PM
3:00 – 3:20 PM
3:30 – 3:50 PM
4:00 – 4:20 PM

* Rebar wishes to thank Henry Hall Designs, Mission Pie and Soo-Hwa Yuan for their generous support to the Nappening.
