Behind the entrance hall of the mansion Villa Streccius in the 'bel etage' an oval area follows, which can already be seen from the stairs entering the villa.

In the center of the area an old ceramic bath tub stands in longitudinal direction   jacked up on rough timber beams. lt is filled with red raspberry jello.

An acrylic glass plate covers the tub, so that the enticing mass in the inside can be only seen, but not touched. The plate reaches approx. 70 cm over the edges and is orientated at the dimensions of the room. lt forms a kind of table together with the tub, with a heavy crystal luster above, which is reflected in the glass.

Along the external walls, which are interrupted by window and doors, color Photos are attached, which match the contour directly of the curved pieces of wall. The structures of the motives and landscapes – they are photographs of mould cultures grown on jellorefer to the baroque elements of architecture in their multicolored, swelling splendour. Also the Photos are reflected in the glass in the center and so projected on the red jelly inside the tub.
