I should have tried a video and/or stereo picture of this piece. It is huge (6.5ft tall and 4.5ft across). Even so, it was looking rather lonely in the gallery, where it was almost the only exhibit. The highly polished black finish and the mass of lights and delicate details were quite mesmerizing.
For some reason, it reminded me of the movies Alien and Dark City. Probably because both are dark and have gothic elements.
