Specimen Dispenser - New Sculpture

My latest sculpture is now pretty much completed, see pics below. A mysterious device with my trademark specimens contained in a dispensing tube. The 33 cm sculpture contains seven specimens each of different design and meaning.

The small slot in the case is for for unknown credits and a keypad is shielded behind two layers of "glass", thus there is no means of contolling the device or using effectively. In addition there is no obvious means for the specimens to be dispensed. On each side commercial panelling reveals the manufacturer as Mancipo Corp. As it gets dark the specimens are covered in a red glow of light. The device sits in the corner of the room being comforting and disturbing at the same time. Already I am strangely attached to it.

I am now working on the "advertising" which will accompany the piece.
