Taking inspiration from cultures and beliefs that differ greatly from the West, Mac has created a series of Headrests with the aim of altering how people interact with the spaces around them. Differing from their purpose in some African cultures as a spiritually linked tool to aid in sleeping, the purpose of these headrests is to entice people out of the fast and stressed lives that we lead. Laying as close to the earth as possible provides a perspective of spaces that had potentially not been observed before. The experience of laying on the floor also disrupts tasks, allowing the owner to isolate themselves from the rush of life that exists above ground level.
