The installation shows photographs of clinically controlled rooms shot in different apartments in Copenhagen. Everything in the picture is reduced to the level of signs; everything is devoid of character. The spatial void can either be seen as a metaphor for a body and psyche in which the internalization of law and order leaves little room for active desire, or as spaces for imagination and possibilities.

The photographs are presented in small rooms behind a wall. On the other side of the wall are words cut out in metal. The words are taken from the work Bodies Without and its story about a young woman with eating disorder.
