    Sleeper, 2017
    Sculptural media installation commissioned by the Beall Center for Art and Technology at UC Irvine, for the exhibition 'Masculine<->Feminine.'
    'Sleeper' plays on the endless cycle of information that fuels our current political state of affairs. The electronics-driven sculptural fountain is constructed from translucent castings of the artist's body, pieced together in the manner of an Exquisite Corpse. 'Sleeper' hangs upside down, eyes closed, while receiving and recycling online campaign rhetoric. Custom-built technology transforms the digital video signals into sound and light via computerized LEDs, animating and illuminating the male form with an infinite onslaught of misinformation.
    10.5 x 10.5 x 4 feet - computer, LEDs, mixed electronics, polycarbonates, aluminum, steel, water pump
