This was an Open studio project and collaboration with Helen Reed, broadcaster and designer. The work was made in response to a surgeon's comment..."keep your feet above your heart for six weeks".

We had a video camera trained on Helen's bandaged feet and recorded conversations around the bedside for long periods during the six weeks. The final piece was show in a reconstructed bedroom in Angela Baum's studio at the Spike Open. The viewer was invited to recline on the beautiful gold bed and listen to and watch the healing process.
