Art installation of bed-forms made of folded used clothes
i fell asleep
Folded used clothing
Seven ‘bed-forms’ each approx. 1,1/4 x 36 x 72 inches (3.175 x 91.4 x 182.9 cm.). Dimensions of the installation are variable

"I fell asleep," was installed, as a comparison in two locations: on the second floor of a partially condemned studio building (pictured here) and the Anna Leonowens Gallery at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. It was on view at the gallery for two weeks and 'abandoned' in the condemned building. Just before the building was slatted for demolition a community performance event was organized by David Miller. I used a metal rod to smash holes in the glass above each bed-form and threw ropes out for the souls to escape. The work was built in the fall of 1989 and photographed here in the spring of 1990.

"I fell asleep" was rebuilt using clothing from local thrift stores for "Depoteque" a group exhibition in a storage space organized by Daneca Jojich in Montreal in 1990 and in 2004 for "Strands of Fabrication" curated by Jill Larson at Fe Gallery in Pittsburgh USA.
