"Once a world's fair folly, the revolving restaurant took over the country and then the world, becoming a gently turning symbol of optimism and progress."

In this on-going project the revolving restaurant is treated as an optical device, where features like elevation and mechanical motion evoke a cinematic experience. The work addresses basic questions of the relationship between moving images and visual perception. Heaven Can Wait does not have neither a defined form nor duration, it is exhibited in accordance to the context/venue.
