You walk in a park, with tall pine trees. At a distance a glass square can be seen in the grass. When there you can see a bathroom that has been placed in the ground, filled with water, the light is on. It is a surreal situation. One has an idea of that there is a toilet down there. The sink and mirror are haning in a green shimmering darkness. Kids from the daycare center lay on the glass to see better, while the grownups hesitate to stand on the glass. My idea was to build a memory pod. To lodge feelings and memories in a room, bury them, but not forget. I think in a dream – reality. Like when they touch. Energy giving interplay.
