A video of a woman masturbating is projected onto the crumpled white sheets of an empty unmade bed. The sounds of moaning are heard. The session culminates in climax, both visually and audibly, followed by sighs and then silence.

An investigation into one’s relationship with oneself through a manifestation of self love and comfort, this work looks not just at isolation and loneliness, but also the active choice one takes in self-relief and satisfaction.
