Meri's Room is a simulation of a modernist space that, on the surface, displays all of the proper and acceptable materials but is constructed of materials from hardware and art supply stores. The room is void of any joyful expression except for the occupants’ choice of a few select objects and the guided meditation taking the participant on an inner journey to her own room where she is safe, comforted and able to free herself from her concerns.
