The surface of the 'bed' is a foamcore topography where presence of the unseen figure has been marked in an eroding manner to form a site or landscape.
Similiarly, the balsa structures have built up around the movement of the figure - like a sediment or residue to fill in the space around the movement.

The timber framing panels exist within the installation as metaphors for 'standard' beliefs or systems - specifically here, as architectural building standards, and medical concepts of standard or 'normal'. The entirety of our society is defined by these basic definitions.

The frame shown here has a twin on the opposite side of the room called Pollux - which is connected to the small 'medical' video projections:

Component D :
In, out, and the bit in-between in and out. Who put the bop in the bopdowapdowap?

This consists of three looped pieces of video that exist to signify - the stream of unconsciousness dream state of the (absent) sleeping figure, a monitoring system to trace the movement patterns (external, body physical) and the pulses and internal rhythms of the figure (internal, bodily/organ)
each video piece goes for approx. 4 minutes with abstract sound. - this piece has a direct correlation to the timber framing piece.
