Rockets made out of household items: Storage cannisters, jewellery, makeup, food, cups and cans. Nuclear missile models made of stacked consumer goods by Aleksandra Mir, stacked like building blocks, nothing but gravity holds them together.
A housewife's simple distraction, her predicament and dream of breaking out.
