Sleep Children was my immediate response to the shooting inside Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. An unsuspecting crowd was gathered at the club when a lone gunman armed with a powerful semi-automatic rifle took the lives of 49 innocent victims. In an hours long battle with law enforcement the shooter was the 50th person to die that night. Sleep Children was my way of personal closure for this horrific incident a vision of death as sleep, floating in space and no longer in terror.
