The main entry to Duke Hospital requires passage through a revolving door. The door occasionally creaks. Several people may pass through the door at a time, as they did at the time of the recording. This revolving door represents the permeable barrier and transition between the outside world and the place of giving and receiving care.

Sound recording of a shopper closing a freezer door in the frozen foods section of the supermarket. The hum of the inside of the freezer is heard at the beginning of the piece, and becomes more and more faint as the door closes. The door closes with a slam, and then another shopper is heard closing a second door directly afterwards, which closes after bouncing back open for a breif second. Recorded using a Zoom H4N audio recorder.
