This piece will be built to the size of the room. It will convey the impression of an enormous reclining body – wedged into the space. It will be built of newspaper, plastic wrap and Christmas lights, supported by a wood and wire frame. It will be interactive and emit a very low-pitch grumbling noise. When someone touches it, all the lights will light up and it will make a louder, low-pitch half-asleep grumble. If possible, the chest will rise and fall slightly to intimate breathing.
