Black and white shapes are arranged along two long walls of the gallery space, clustered tightly in the beginning and more loosely arranged as you proceed. Sometimes these patterns are referenced elsewhere in the space. For example, a star is painted on one wall and another has been cut from the floor. The latter provides a view of the basement, which is illuminated with red light.

Everything in the installation is either black or white with the exception of blue and green mattresses and upturned terra-cotta pots, which support the mattress piles like the legs of bed frames. A red glow on the ceiling at the rear of the installation is actually a reflection from an unseen panel coated with red fluorescent paint.
