The remains of "Site-223".

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Anomaly Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: A perimeter has been established around SCP-XXXX; outside of testing, no one is to cross this perimeter. A collection of small paintings are to kept at the containment outpost situated outside of the affected area, which are to be used to recover anyone that should become trapped within.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a anomaly that affects the consciousness of living creatures, surrounding an area designated Site-223 in the Foundation database. Remaining within SCP-XXXX for two to five minutes (varying from person to person) will cause a person to enter an anomalous coma.

People entering SCP-XXXX can be protected from its effects by carrying an object that could be considered art somewhere on their person; small paintings and sculptures have proven successful, and a small percentage of photographs tested have also proven effective. Comas induced by SCP-XXXX exposure can be reversed by placing a viable piece of art on their body.

People recovering from the effect of SCP-XXXX have reported experiencing vivid nightmares during their coma. The content of these dreams varies from person to person, but common themes include darkness, monotony, and homogenisation. Universally, those awakening from SCP-XXXX-induced comas compare the sensation of waking up to being pulled from deep under water.

SCP-XXXX was discovered when an automated distress warning was received from Site-223, immediately followed by the detonation an unknown implosion device at the Site. The Site itself was found entirely destroyed, along with the bodies of 25 deceased humanoids. Site-223 is documented as primarily containing anomalous art; none of these objects were found in the ruins.

Investigation of the remains of Site-223 itself have suggested that it was never an active Foundation facility, and that construction of the facility itself was relatively recent. No Foundation personnel questioned thus far were aware of Site-223 prior to its destruction, and no evidence has been found that it was ever inhabited by living humans. Autopsies on the recovered bodies revealed they were artificial constructs, and that it is unlikely they were ever alive.

RAISA are currently investigating all information regarding Site-223 in Foundation databases.

A single wall believed to be located at the entrance of what was Site-223 survived the destruction intact. Carved into the wall and coloured with black paint are the words

"In this nightmare prison, art is the only relief"

and below that, crudely sprayed with red spray paint,

"Are We Cool Yet?"
