the island of the sleep
a pile of 100 sheets form an island
wakefulness begins to fall and we fall asleep

the island of the sleep
linked to the cotton mill in Norrtälje in the late 1700s
this artwork can be seen as a tribute to all washerwomen
and also as a personal interpretation of "Death Island" by Arnold Böcklin
