"Bedroom/Soverom: 11am - 1pm/5am - 7am"

A fallow field, Ames, Iowa | Spring, 1995

Two places, same activity - sleep. For "SHEET," a show of work by women architects upon bed-sheets, we addressed questions of simultaneous lives, multiple states of consciousness, the transformation of an object in time, and the rituals of daily life. Hands, acting when awake, make a bed - prepare for sleep. Norwegian and Michigan bedrooms overlap, linked by a shared bed. In sleep the room disappears - the dreamer anywhere. Upon waking, the room is reconstituted and the dreams disappear. The sheet is washed and hung to dry in the sun - blue fades to brown.
