Persistent Optimism


Glitter, air compressors, hose, fittings, buckets, funnels

220 kg of silver glitter was blown in randomised bursts down the walls of the gallery, piling in corners and gradually building into drifts on the floor.  The ‘machine’ continued to function until it had consumed the glitter supply and buried itself in it’s own actions.
