What: A self-broadcasting bed that live streams straight to Instagram, questioning the merging of our physical and digital identity.

Why: In the age of minimal housing, physical space is being replaced with virtual space. We work, shop and socialise online without having to leave our bed. As a reflection of contemporary society, Felicity Morris presents this intimate domestic object as a site for public broadcasting.

How: Surrounded by selfie sticks and blogger ring lights, her bed becomes the stage for a series of live streams, inviting the viewer into this private domain. The mattress acts as a green screen that can situate her anywhere whilst in bed, and the static blanket lets her show or hide as much as desired.
