As part of an enamel course on menstruation in its religious context, i.e .: the woman shook. During this period she checks for signs of bleeding through a tissue called a 'witness' and often in the case of a stain she has to send this witness to the rabbi to decide if it is menstrual blood or just bleeding. The private, the intimate may at any moment become a public thing. The very act of inserting the 'witness' into our intimacy and searching for the 'stain' or rather the 'non-stain' takes the inside out.
