I offer an alternative lens for the comfort and intimacy that is commonly associated with this functional object. Cutting into the surface of the mattress exposes its complex layers of support, while simultaneously leaving them vulnerable to manipulation. The resulting patterns are inspired by organic forms in nature and the human body, creating a dialogue with the artificiality of the leftover object. Overall, this piece examines changes in human connection, preserving a regard for the topography of what was lost while exploring the creation of something new.
