This sculpture by Canadian artist, Carl Taçon, was the winner of a national competition. Carl's proposal, a life-sized carving of a bed, was based on the building's history as the former Peel County Jail and is intended to "examine the idea of a bed as comfort, in contrast to the stark conditions of incarceration".

The granite for the sculpture was generously donated by A. Lacroix et Fils Granit Ltée.

The first phase of the project, a raised base made out of "Jet Mist" black granite, was completed in late 2013. The cut granite base's pattern is a distorted grid, referencing the perceived cast light and shadow from one of the historic jailhouse windows. The carved bed will be cut from "Orion" black granite.
