Bottle Mechanism #1, 2005. Various Metals, bottle, springs, brake cable, HDP. 14" x 14" x 14".

Piece consists of two parts joined together with bicycle brake cable: the mechanical base, and the mechanism that fits inside of the bottle. When the bottle with the mechanism is atop the mechanical base, the combined weight maintains enough tension to keep the mechanism inside the bottle expanded, bracing itself in the center of the bottle.
