How do webcams influence sexual interplay, both on the screen and 'in the bedroom'? Furthermore, how does an audience respond to a public display of such activity? This installation showcases a bed laden with LCD screens and mobile touch devices underneath a satin sheet illuminating the mattress surface. These screens and mobile devices view live  'queer' media networks known for cybersex interactivity. Additionally a laptop is joined to the installation implementing a live webcam feed and luring the audience to participate with the subjects on screen.
