To make this work, Pippin overturned
a bath tub and mounted it on a wooden stand. In complete darkness, he lined
the bath with photographic papers and sealed the top, leaving only a pin-hole
at the centre. He then lay naked on
the bathroom floor while light flooded
the room. The exposure time was
ninety minutes.

 

Pippin described this as a process which imitates 'the normal relationship with a bath, which is always one where we are naked and partially inactive for a period
of time; floating in a secluded physical and mental space'.
