The Tides

Beeswax from remelted Madam Tussauds and Musée Grevin waxworks figures, iron bed, light projection

91 x 192 x 60cm

A sphere of wax salvaged from melted figures from waxwork museums (Madame Tussaud's in London and Musé Grevin in Paris) was cast, transfixed by the springs of an old bed.  It was lit in a dark room by a circle of light exactly fitting the wax sphere, so it appeared like a planet.
