Artist’s notes:

The context of exhibiting in a satellite venue of the Milan Furniture Fair, together with sponsorship from Martini, prompted this functional construction. A classic cocktail glass inspires the form, and the glamorous night scape of the city of Milan is echoed in the points of light travelling in an Archimedian spiral. The construction involved collaboration with another artist (Jon Pengelly), two designers (Julian Malins, Martin Bouette) and a local engineering firm (Aitken, Aberdeen).
