Image Description: Two pillowcases with pale red stains, are hung vertically on a white wall. The left pillowcase has injection needles, with their caps on, stuck through the bottom half of the fabric. The right one has short strands of black yarn speckling the pillowcase. The bottoms of the pillowcases bulge from the memory foam filling. The photograph is taken at 3/4th angle with the yarn speckled pillowcase closer to us. They are spotlit and shadows of the hanging yarn and needles are cast on the wall.
