There are two works of mine that related to this topic. One is called Grate, it involves the performance, installation, and video. I used the 12-foot steel wire to catch the cigarettes which remain at the bottom of the grate. Another one is Straws, I used the straws to measure the depth of the grate. The photos and video which I've attached to this email have more detailed information. Thank you for taking your time. Looking forward to hearing from you.
