"Sweet Dreams" Site-Specific Installation for John Slade Ely House, New Haven CT
2000
Audio tape, cassettes, text, bed
variable dimensions
A web of knotted audio tape is spread over a dysfunctional bed frame in an empty room, formerly a bedroom in the John Slade Ely House in New Haven, CT. Is the woven tape a bedspread, a warm, protective quilt, or a net trapping the bed’s occupant in a psychological web? The corners of the net/ quilt lead you to the tape’s source: 4 “self-help” audio cassettes labeled 8 Days To Great Sex!/ Coping With Stress: Night/ Laugh At Your $ Troubles!/ Improve Yourself While You Sleep!
