Dead to the World
'Dead to the World' uses thermal imagery to determine heat points in the body while sleeping, using a camera to intrusively photograph sleeping subjects whose age spans from birth to old age. All are vulnerable in images attempting to illustrate the living heat that survives each night, not just the infants and elderly whom we worry are most vulnerable to not waking up - there is as much of the heat of life in the coldest part of the night in them as all the other subjects. 'Dead to the world' questions the link between sleep and death, as sleep is no longer thought to be a result of lowered brain activity and a taster of death, but the most active time for the brain.
