This is Tracy Emin's "The Bed", an installation piece that won her the 1999 Turner Prize. It is the actual bed, carpet, empty liquor bottles, dirty clothes, and used condoms from the period of time of her nervous breakdown where she spent several weeks in that bed. This piece, and most of Emin's pieces have the type of sometimes self-destructive honesty I hope to inject into my own work.
