A commuting audience in The Hague's Central Station was invited to step onto a large wooden podium and discover something magical in an ordinary item: a matchbox. When peeking into the box the audience becomes a voyeur as they witness the intimate space of a miniature elderly couple sleeping inside. The couple was located in a full sized bed under the stage and out of sight.
Overall there is something discreet and forlorn about this encounter, it is a little memorial to things failed to be noticed; objects tossed away and forgotten moments of intimacy.
