A temporary artwork that ceased operating in January 2011. Part of the façade of a derelict building of former 'Yates's Wine Lodge' in the city centre, ovoid cut from the façade of the Cross Keys house made to oscillate in three dimensions. The revolving façade acted as a huge opening and closing 'window', offering glimpses of the interior.
