A room is filled with eight glowing nests which contain ceramic eggs imprinted with the names of seventeen different congenital heart defects. Strewn amongst them are intravenous lines and vials. Suspended before windows paneled with fabric are silkscreens of 19th Century anatomical lithographs of the heart. Soundtrack of bird calls and hospital sounds is heard.
