Queen, pocket spring mattress unit, latex paint, gallon latex paint cans

42" x 71" x 48"

The pocket-spring mattress unit rests uncomfortably partially against the wall and partially on the cold, bare floor. It has been stripped of all that makes it recognizable as a mattress, naked it soaks up the paint randomly poured into it. The nearly spent paint cans lay open next to the unit neither representative of their original purpose, neither having their same values nor were they ever meant to be joined, emptied or combined.
