A massage couch, installed in a room away from the main stream of visitors, invites you to relax. Lying there on your belly, you look through an enlarged opening for nose and mouth, and see a monochromous blue. As the screen is placed quite close to your face, you soon give up the attempt to focus your eyes. At this moment, the monochromous image glides downward into the floor and moves evenly towards your belly. The image is giving you a massage. Images of sea and sand appear and they vanish as soon as you try to focus on them.
