You don’t sleep, you never sleep well. If sleeping was your profession you wouldn’t keep a job (or State of Emergency), 2013

In You don’t sleep(…) whistling sounds that emulate car alarms, sirens, and alarm clocks, play from concealed locations in different buildings. When exhibited, the reverberating sounds resonated throughout different streets of Downtown Halifax during Nocturne Art at Night festival (2013) and streets of Downtown Toronto during Nuit Blanche (2014). The alarms were choreographed to form varying crescendos throughout the evening.
