Rosemarie Trockel “Sleeping Pill” 1999
For this installation the artist created “relaxation suits” out of plastic and suspended a couple in them while sleeping. For the course of its exhibition the couple was suspended and unaware of the viewers moving about them. The artist said the state of the couple and the entrapment they were in was an illustration of “exhausted, powerless lovers”
This beautiful jellyfish is the flower hat jelly. It’s a fierce predator in the west Pacific, and uses its tentacles to sting prey. When not in use, the tentacles coil up into its bell compartment, as seen here.
