'Fences, Bed' by Dejana Kabiljo is meant to symbolize confinement, and was put on during an exhibition in Milan.

In the words of the artist: "if freedom is such an elusive term, it is no wonder that we all too eagerly choose divisions and safety: the golden cage." This is what the design is supposed to be about; many individuals live in a world where freedom is valued, but yet people still choose lives of confinement. The pristine white pillows placed inside the cage can symbolize just how comfortable people become in their comfort zone, avoiding adventure or the chance for an even better lifestyle. The surrounding cage is done in a metal fence material, which makes one picture being in a prison, looking through at greener grass on the other side.
