The Old Man is Snoring

Installation, 2013

The Old Man is Snoring is a series that investigates the relationship between creation and destruction. The works are comprised of an interactive sculpture, narrated poem, and filmic adaptation. They are presented together as an installation.

 

The piece concerns the psychology of altering one's environment. The character in this dilemma is God because deities are the ultimate operators of creation and destruction. The poem takes place in an intimate setting on a Friday evening.

 

"The Rain Machine" is a sculpture based on an early film technique. In The Old Man is Snoring, the viewer hand-cranks the rainfall in an infinite cycle.
