A proposal is passed from the host to the presiding Councillor for Culture: to display a public sculpture on his home, adjacent to a window of his choosing, for the councilman’s contemplation. Said sculpture – a ceramic elipsoid whose coloured glaze complements the shutter’s paintwork – is donated to the city, to be relocated and recoloured on the following councillor’s accession.

An airbrushed artist’s impression hangs in the gallery – seen from opposite the councillor’s POV – with minor changes to architectural details.
