The project takes the form of a personal diary. A young man lies still with his head soaking in the bath while two stuffed animals seem to meet up and the women hide, some behind a lace mask, others under bed sheets. Sensuality is hinted at, displayed but disharmonious, and the subjects too are ambiguous and vaguely disquieting. Their identities are in the process of being defined, they cooperate with the camera lens but are its victims at the same time.
