About This Work

'Twins' have been part of series called 'Sleepers'. Sleepers come from time spent with those in a stage of life where care for daily activities must be provided. ‘Residents’, as they are called by ‘caregivers’, pay good money to absolute strangers for help in dressing, eating, washing and other necessities. The strangers or ‘caregivers’ are paid market driven wages from their employers to take care of the ‘Residents’. Disability among an ageing population is projected to grow in years to come within the OECD countries. We romanticizes about our elders living and teaching our young, helping share the burden and being helped in turn. But this is not the trend. Under these strange circumstances where different lives and agendas collide, personalities are unfettered and paraded. Memories, lusts and frustrations become human tokens of being alive. Some are playing their last Joker. Sleepers come from experiences with these encountered residents.
