Video/sound installation
Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; Museum Purchase: Gift of Milton Fine and A.W. Mellon Acquisition Endowment Fund. A black-and-white monitor on a wooden chest shows a close-up view of a person sleeping. At random intervals the lights in the room cut out and large violent images appear on the walls as loud roaring sounds fill the space. After a few seconds, the lights come on and the room abruptly returns to normal, as if a momentary glimpse to another, parallel world has appeared, revealing a dark underside to the familiar well-lit environment.
