Art Installation
2012

This collection of wine bottles formed an installation at the Planet Of The Grapes wine bar in London. Intended as a 'drink responsibly' campaign, each of the bottles represents an alcoholic from popular culture who sadly met their demise at the hands of their addiction. Each bottle was wall-mounted in its own casket, overlooking unsuspecting quaffers. Head down to the bar to celebrate life or drown your sorrows under the watchful eyes of the Dead Drunks.

"It’s beautifully done, and reminds you to take yourself home instead of polishing off another bottle and passing out on the stairs." - AA Gill
