Making the bed in the morning is an easy action and a simple gesture. Some of us make it everyday, some don’t. The Story Of My Beds is the fractured narrative of a ritual, where spreading the blanket over the bed is like pulling the red curtain down onto the theatre of the night. The bed is the starting point to the path of reality of a more or less ordinary everyday life here and there.
