Adam Shield's 'Sleeping Patterns' collection applies photography to discarded furniture. The project is based in Glasgow where the artist captures images of disposed mattresses, allowing his viewers to get a feel for just how often the pieces are thrown out.

Sleeping Patterns is arranged in a chronological manner. Shield's does an excellent job of dating each of his findings, revealing the fast paced frequency within which he comes across heaps of fabric and wood.

This project is only one of Shield's many endeavors however, slightly surprising given his routine picture updates. His home site 'Drawing is Good' displays his many other talents and ventures, inclusive of drawing, still life portraits, animal snapshots and up close shots of urban happenings.
