Presented as part of English Heritage’s Millennium Sitooteries exhibition in Belsay Hall this kinetic work was situated in the Butler’s Pantry. Mimicking the mechanism of a dumb waiter the piece had two moving screens, one of cutlery, the other crockery. As the screens rose and fell within the floor-less space, passing the windows, light played across the screens, and the sounds of a distant dinner party were heard. It is very much one of a family of Works that includes 1001 Nights and Counterweight.   Independent Review
