A candle is burning on top a stack of books fixed inside a bottle, but the flame remains in its exact position for 75 hours. Inside the object, a mechanism is pushing the candle upwards at the same speed at which it is consuming wax. Of course, no one would remain for two hours in a gallery to check if the candle is actually getting shorter.

 

This work is in excellent condition with no discernible condition issues. Detailed condition report available upon request.
