In this observational diptych, the narrator, Daan Bunnik depicts the struggles of observing the ageing bodies of his parents. The part about his father examines what it does to a child to see the ageing, naked body of his father and the part about his mother addresses the pain of a child to see his mother struggling with her less valid body. In this project Bunnik expresses the difficulties of not being able to avert the ageing process of his parents and having to adapt to and cope with this new situation.
