sleepers #1-8


Set of eight, ~ 84 x 11 1/2” each 


Eight bi-national couples were photographed during one night of sleep. Each couple chose colors of their bed sheets, covers and what to wear. The camera placed parallel to the bed recorded body movements every 42 minutes until they woke up and turned it off. These images challenge traditional notions of portraiture: although the person sleeping is physically present, unconscious they are not in direct control of their movements. Sleepers emphasizes themes of chance, collaboration, involuntary choreography, cinematic influences, diversity, and universal connections. In the collection of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Art Program.
