This room is not in Delft. This room is in the mind of the tended, of this space. And his space is full of darkness, his is a darkroom were air shapes are like humans in his mind.
To play with and to act upon, like a body, to use but there is more in his mind. He wants to be more like a nurse- a caretaker. Tender and soft, his conflict is that he is not tender and soft so he tries to be tender in his own way.
Here you see some photos of his private archive, so you can feel his conflict. I hope you are ready to enter into his state of mind now.
