Exact model of childhood bedroom inspired by the fact that mothers often preserve their child’s bedroom from the moment the child leaves home, creating a kind of physical storage for childhood. It presents ideas of how we are physically and psychologically shaped (and haunted) by our childhood and asks whether every decision and action is determined by an unbroken chain of prior experience; in what sense adulthood is the consequence of childhood. In what form is the childhood room actually stored? The mother literalises what the child has internalised, which goes on evolving into new forms.
