A regular Hoover® stick vacuum cleaner hung from the ceiling with a 500 watt stage/studio light bulb installed in the bag compartment, controlled via a wall mounted momentary contact switch. When activated, the rotational force of the motor causes the sculpture to spin and the lamp casts bands of light and shadows on the walls. This sculpture was painted with spray paint designed for use with plastic. The original vacuum was beige.

This sculpture was exhibited at the Paragraph Gallery in 2008 along with Let's Have a Four-way Mr. Kosha. In that exhibition one of the switches in that installation was used to activate B.T.M. on the other side of the gallery space.

B.T.M. refers to the ANSI code assigned to the light bulb used inside the sculpture. The periods in the title were only added for ambiguity.
