The sculptural installation of an abandoned table setting has been built to the scale of 1½:1, thereby shrinking the spectator to the average height of a seven-year-old child. The entire work is painted immaculately white, in contrast to the remnants of cake, coffee, and cigarettes, which have been meticulously crafted to look hyper-real. The overall effect makes the whole setting resemble a memory or dream image.
