It was first shown at fa projects, London in 2003 and then (*denotes catalogue) in the following solo exhibitions: Art Now, Lightbox Tate Britain, London * / Ludwig Museum, Budapest, Hungary / Mori art museum, Tokyo, Japan*.

The work is in the collections of British Council Collection and Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art.
The first work we have produced without a figure being present within the frame, 66.86m presents the making of a three- dimensional drawing of a generic chair. The continuous take from a fixed camera, together with the jerky movements of the rope and pulleys (used to produce the drawing) re-enforces the distance between the work and current CGI technologies. The work seeks to examine the relationship between what is present within the frame and what is excluded. A very direct relationship is formed in that it is evident that what is onscreen is being directly activated by what is off screen, contrary to most film making where this relationship is hidden. The work also seeks to examine the relationship between the three dimensional space in which the activity is taking place, the activity itself, drawing (normally associated with two dimensions) and the television
