dog snoring in corner
low battery woman voice says from the alarm sensor
knees against seat
feet under bum
low hum from the dishwasher
computer tilted to its side
camera to my right
book on my left
dog snoring louder in corner...

Jules Verne states, "Look with all your eyes, look."
and listen.

George Perec coins, "The Infraordinary," as the "the markings and manifestations of the everyday that consistently escape our attention as they compose the essence of our lives -- what happens, when nothing happens.”[1] The show, The Infraordinary, presents works that "record, compose, or transform these substrata of experience."
