Edition 2: Collection of the artist; courtesy Anthony d’Offay Gallery, London. Current news scrolls across an electronic display sign with up-to-date reports on the daily events of the world. The illuminated text is harsh and bright. A black open doorway intersects the sign, dividing it in two and leading to a dark inner room. Inside this room, three large, dim, black-and-white projections of people's faces while sleeping appear on the walls. The sound of regular breathing can be heard in the darkness. Occasionally, one of the figures moves or shifts position but remains asleep, an unconscious presence existing beneath the incessant flow of worldly events.
