During the Open Studios at the Jan Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, it is installed a mock-up of a bed-device, derived from a reflection on the bed as a place of many rituals. It is an oversized day-blanket crowned by a baldaquin; an open, sensorial platform for socializing; a concise, portable and foldable architecture; a multi-purpose unit. Different materials, forms and thicknesses shape the ground for planned and unforeseen spatial practices and interactions between production and leisure, expanding the two- dimensional textile object into a three dimensional site of action, a microcosmos of activities.
It was later on installed at Berlage Instituut at TuDelft during a symposium on ‘The Bed in the Age of Social Media’, a masterclass lead by Beatrix Colomina.
