This is Not Rest
This is Not Rest

2012; video of the artist sleeping, handmade cotton paper, bed; 80" x 60" x 25" Recording the nights of the artist over several weeks, nights to days and silhouette of the tossing body is accelerated into a flickering light (moth at a bulb), projected onto the remains of a bed worked over. The deconstructed mattress frame is a precarious loom for threads pulled from a bedsheet. Cotton bedsheets themselves converted into a stack of loose paper on a loom table.
