The Bedroom (The Mother) invites (via adjacent museum plaque) the viewer to lie down, the weight of the viewer's body triggers a soundtrack, heard through the pillow, only audible to the participant. The plaque reads:
"The particular condition of becoming multiple and when to rest your eyes." and "Lie down, just a few minutes. Press your head into the pillow to block out the day"
The track is a collection of a single voice, reciting words of different mothers, literary, historic, and contemporary. The mothers heard in this soundtrack include:
Sethe of Toni Morrison's Beloved
Molly Bloom of James Joyce's Ulysses
Social media posts from F. Turner, mother, activist, and academic from University of Illinois Chamapaign-Urbana, Illinois.
Mothers from Five Hour Energy commercials
Mothers from various cough medicine commercials
