Alt text: The first room in the exhibition Beatrice Glow: Once the Smoke Clears. On a central, dark brown pedestal, there are three 3D-printed white and blue tobacco jars with gold lids. The jars feature tobacco-related imagery from 19th and 20th century money. Behind the pedestal, the walls of the gallery are covered in a wallpaper that features a repeating pattern of fragments of the tobacco jars. The bottom two-thirds of the wallpaper are the blue and white fragments, while the top third are the gold fragments. The wallpaper also features a background gradation that changes from dark brown to smoky grey from bottom to top.
