An intervention in reaction to the British Board of Film Classification‘s 1916 policy drawn up by T.P.O’Connor that stated in rule 34 of 43 that prohibited men and women to be in bed together. A policy that effected Hollywood’s exports to the United Kingdom, a large part of their foreign market. Forcing them to depicted couples in twin beds as British film-makers were doing. An aspect of classic cinema which can be confused with the Hays Code in the U.S. a self imposed form of censorship that was drawn up in the 1930’s. Inspired also by the four bedroom scenes found in Mrs Miniver (1942) which along with a selection of other films that obeyed this censorship ruling. Pushing the twin beds of on-screen couples in photographic form from screen-shots sourced from found footage.
