"In Slumber…the artist prepares to sleep in a museum or gallery. She is connected to a polysomnograph machine, which records her rapid eye movement during dream activity. When she wakes up, she uses the machines printout as a pattern for weaving, seated at an elaborate loom of her own design. During the day (interacting with the audience) she works, producing an endless blanket using pieces of fabric torn from her nightgown. The blanket covers her as she sleeps, dreaming the next day’s template. This ‘studio-sculpture,’ which has been performed/shown several times around the world, is classic Antoni; a charged relay from mind to body in private and public.” - Stuart Horodner, Bombsite.com

Harry witnessed Professor McGonagall walking right past Peeves, who was determinedly loosening a crystal chandelier, and could have sworn he heard her tell the poltergeist out of the corner of her mouth, “It unscrews the other way.”
