sleeper   n. 1. a person who is sleeping   2. A spy or saboteur who is planted in an enemy country and who lives
unobtrusively as a citizen of that country until activated into clandestine operations by a prearranged signal. 14.
To be, or appear to be, in repose; to be quiet; to be unemployed, unused, or unagitated; to rest; to lie dormant; as,
a question sleeps for the present; the law sleeps.
cell n. 5. The smallest organizational unit of a centralized group or movement.

SLEEPER_CELL is an experiment challenging how we experience reality - a reality where the human and the electronic
eye interact daily. Inaccessible spy technology has become consumer goods: camcorders with digital zoom and night
allow us to see what is invisible to the naked eye.

I explore the potential for action and change latently sleeping in each and every individual in every moment. The threat
of violence and possibility for generous exchanges are omnipresent. The title's reference to post-911 terminology is
meant to stress the urgency of a point of view.
