The work features three animations in constant loop. Since there is no action, no continuity and no conventional event description, the work has a photographic quality. The relationship between the building foundation and the beds with this indoor pool represents an effort to use animation in a different dimension than commercial architectural visualization. The elements, water, the wall and the bed, have been brought together to construct a virtual stage. When assessed in terms of signs, the work may seem to suggest a relationship based on the one-to-ne correspondence between the waterbed and the mattress, however the fundamental issue revolves around the active components in the video. The association of a static object and the animated surface of the water might, within the context of the exhibition, be related to feelings of security and shelter. The beds moving on the surface of the water establish similarities between their own zones and geography. The work focuses on topics such as the borders of a private zone and their change, and notions such as gathering, dispersing and migration.
