A model of a house and garden slowly rotates on a teak wooden box while soft music continuous playing.
The model resemble of a ruin or a part of a suburbian house turned inside out. The ground is covered by green grass and mixed with a parquet floor in herring-bone pattern. Evergreen bushes, like cypress and thuja, enclose the garden and the house.
The soft music are made out of the intro to the song liten fiskehamn, which has a typical melodi used in swedish dance orchestra. The song from 1979, is written in narrative form and tells about a sailor who drowns in black silent water.
