In the installation, The Bed Project, very small fragments of plants are scanned, their color is removed, and they are transformed digitally until their identity has been lost, but patterns alluding to a certain universality have been gained. Two 'beds' are constructed from lit, paper domes printed with the patterns. The idea of the bed becomes a reference to beds we sleep on, riverbeds, flowerbeds, seedbeds and deathbeds. All of these have to do with regeneration and life emerging out of death, all taking place in silence.
The Bed Project was exhibited at I-Space Gallery in Chicago in 2003, and at the New Art Center in Newtonville, MA, in 2004.
Each paper form is internally lit, and is aproximately 10 inches high and 7 inches in diameter.
