A glass sphere filled with transparent fluid acts as a magnifying glass. A chromed pewter plate is fixed accurately in the focal point. When the sun is strong, the energy of the focal point will melt the pewter and make a hole in the chromed plate. As the height of the Sun changes a little bit every day, the focus point will change through all the year. In this way, it produced a unique weather-, time-and location-related object in the course of the exhibition.
