During the later period of Christopher’s residence at boarding school he learnt that, if the hand of a sleeping boy were to be submerged in tepid water, the boy would be made to wet his bed. After the passing of a number of years, this knowledge has provided him with the subject for a short video. He is producing the video alone, on this Sunday evening, in a room that once served as his mother’s sewing room. In the years between her death and Christopher’s present production, it has contained a small number of disused items that have failed to find a home elsewhere in the apartment.
Fiberglass reinforced polyester resin, polyurethane foam, oil paint, synthetic wig, human hair eyebrows and eyelashes, video camera with tripod and case, television, various suit cases, 'National Geographic' magazines, various natural and synthetic draperies and bedding, sewing machine and table, potted plant, ceramic ashtray with butts, plastic water bottles, hung ceiling (steel frame, stained acoustic panels), crystal chandelier.
