Video installation
Edition 1: Musée d’Art Contemporain, Montreal.
Seven metal barrels are filled to the brim with water. They each contain a black-and-white video monitor positioned on the bottom. Each monitor shows a recording of a person’s face while asleep, presented with little or no editing. A different person appears in each barrel, and they remain isolated from each other on their individual screens beneath the water. The soft light from the video screens emerges from each barrel and diffuses in the room.
