The inspiration for Bourgeois first and only rug design was a diary entry dated February 7, 1995, when she wrote the phrase "Has the day invaded the night? Has the night invaded the day?" in a loose script. For the project, Bourgeois wanted dark text embedded in a field of off-white natural wool fibres, hand-woven in Morocco's Atlas Mountains—a nod to traditional Berber art from the Beni Ourain tribe.
