This piece features a softly glowing bed in a white room with an image of film burning projected on the wall. The film eventually burns completely, leaving the only the white rectangle of light from the screen on the wall. After some time, a man sleeping in the bed displayed in the installation appears in this white space. He wakes up and gets out of the bed, and then moves in front of the camera, which then goes black. The 16mm film projector turns off concurrent with this due to an automatic switch, and the bed fills with light. An actual radio program can then be heard coming from the radio set up next to the bed.This film installation is meant to deal with the experiencing of "dreams" as a sort of borderland between the real and the unreal.
