This piece is a representation of my relationship with my bed as a person struggling with depression. I wanted to evoke the stale, messy, and rotting feeling that I get after a prolonged period in my bed. It is meant to be hung on the wall and interacted with. Viewers may feel the material and explore the fabric to reveal the hidden silkscreen printed messages.
