It deutilizes 60 toilet seat bolts/nuts into Sixty Rhombicosidodecahedron vertices.
It deutilizes an exercise ball  into a pure sphere  (inscribed sphere of the Rhombicosidodecahedron).

About the Show

REM, or rapid eye movement sleep, is the fifth of the five stages of sleep most people go through each night and when dreams most likely take place.  Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind.  REM Cycle challenged artists to interpret their dreams or nightmares.
