Take-aways is a self portrait plaster bust which sits on a white plinth. The plinth houses a very slow grinding belt machine which rasps away at the underside of the bust. A bust will typically take one week to be ground down, whereupon it was replaced with a fresh bust. The number of busts exhibited relates to the duration, in weeks, of the show.

The work is now in the James Wallace Collection.
