In some cases staying in bed can be an act of indulgence and luxury, in other a necessity. The work depicts a dream like state that occurs during bed rest, time loses it's meaning as well as the boundary between being awake and in sleep. The bed becomes something else, a complete world, a state of mind – a pause.
