Century of Progress / Sleep is an experimental opera that reflects on the intellectual, environmental, spiritual, and cultural consequences of mischaracterizations of science, lawless theories of knowledge, and epistemological chaos. This work was realized through the 2019 Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation Artist-in-Residence Program at Colgate University.
