Artist's description:

This follows on from previous work "Is there Life on Mars?" which was inspired for the Space Day, on Friday 6th May, and later the World Space Week, from 4th to 10th October, 2016, to raise awareness of Space related issues.

The Artist had been following some of the events of Tim Peake, earlier this year (the first UK astronaut to be stationed on the International Space Station in Space).

The Artist has used a series of repetitive Steel Cans, but changes the Labels of them to iconic characters such as "Tom & Jerry", amended to "Tim & Jerry", refers to "Tim" Peake. He has changed the Can to that of a Spray Can, such that his referring to the Can shape of the International Space Station, or Space Shuttle, with spray coming out, during take-off from Earth.

The Spray is used as method of compulsion, to move the Shuttle forward in Space. The compulsion Spray of Spray Can has been inspired by the James Bond (aka Roger Moore) in "Live and Let Die" (1973) in which James Bond was in a Hotel room on a Caribbean Island, and spots a snake in the bathroom cabinet "Mirror" behind him, and lights the Spray of the Spray Deo Can with a cigarette to destroy it. The "Mirror" has been represented by the Label with reflective Sliver paint, similar to "Mirror" in previous work "Eau de Toilette de Venus".
