Bower was created during my one and half years living in the Yorkshire countryside in the UK. A lamp shade found on the street is embedded into plaster, in which many thin branches are arranged in a bower (Bower birds build elaborate structures, so-called bowers, out of leaves, sticks and everything else they can find).
A mirror is positioned behind the bower to create a double image, while also reflecting the painted inside stucture of the lamp shade.
