The Electric Bed
153 x 192 cm

When my condition worsen I was put into a locked ward and finally into a side room. I believed for a period of time that my bed had been wired up to the electricity supply and it would be switched on at midnight precisely and I would die by electrocution.

I would on most evenings try desperately to find the wires leading to my bed and detect the source. A box of some sorts situated on the wall just outside my room became of great interest to me although I never did discover how it was connected!

I would wake in the morning my body covered with perspiration and laying on my back with my legs and arms outstretched, all firmly pressed against the mattress: a good bodily position for effective electrocution.
