Sheet size: 44 x 36 in (111.8 x 91.4 cm)

Damien Hirst's spin art works were inspired by long exposure photographs of the night sky, as was the portfolio's title. This print comes from the second portfolio of 14 such etchings that recreated his 'spin' paintings through the etching technique. This series is one of the artist's first forays into the medium of engraving. The etchings were created by attaching copper plates to a spin machine and incising them with sharp tools such as needles and screwdrivers. The concentric-circle format is a result of the mark left by the tool on the spinning plate.
