The visitor enters a large space. Apart from a faint light in the distance, all is dark. After one has adjusted to the dark, one distinguishes the outlines of a room.

The room appears to be taken out of a house and put into infinite black. The room is deserted and apart from a bed, some toys and drawings, it is nearly unoccupied. Grey birds hang from the ceiling. All color is absent as if the whole image dates from a long gone past.

Each time the visitor tries to reach this image, it seems as if the distance between him and the room grows larger. In reality, the light in the room gradually dims on the rhythm of his paces. Eventually the visitor discovers he’s in the dark, unable to reach the dreamy image of something that could as well have been fiction.
