'When I'm Asleep'

 

Exhibited at Belladrum Festival Inverness, 2014

Materials:  Prison bunk beds, steel poles, sign, and ladder.

One morning, whilst working in the Education department in a Prison, an offender learner said to me that when he was asleep he felt more awake because he forgot where he was. His situation came rushing back to him upon opening his eyes and seeing the underside of the bunk bed. The beds in this artwork were donated by the prison and the top bunk now stretches up to the sky and higher than the wall. The beds are in a music festival, which in contrast to the prison, symbolises freedom and fun.
