Bottle Mechanism #3, 2010. Mixed. 22 " x 22 " x 12".
Piece consists of two parts joined together with bicycle brake cable: the mechanical base, and the mechanism that fits inside of the bottle. The weight of the bottle, and the piece inside the bottle, maintains enough tension in the system as a whole to keep the mechanism inside the bottle expanded, bracing itself in the center of the bottle. This tension also keeps the bottle from dropping any further.
