‘Snore Louder If You Can’ is a book about the works of artist-curator Heman Chong, aka NoSleepRequired. As it is targeted at museums, art galleries and curators, the book had to be more than a promotional publication of Chong’s works, but a collectible object that would be appreciated and memorable.
In response to the title, a scene of the book sitting in a room during bedtime was imagined, which then sparked the idea of using glow-in-the-dark ink for the book cover.
In the predominantly black and white book, a thin chapter on glossy stock which features several of Chong’s installations is sandwiched by 2 main sections: the front consisting of 6 essays and the back featuring 70 full page images, re-sampled from Chong’s ‘God Bless Diana’.
The book received positive feedback from potential collaborators in art communities around the world. Amongst these were those who got a surprise (or shock) when the lights went off at bedtime.
