'Celestial Mechanics 25-1088'
Perspex, blue perspex, pencil, spray enamel, fixtures
25 x 25 x 8 cms overall : 2014
This is a three layer perspex sandwich with a 4th layer functioning as a hanging plate. The piece is held together with 4 hex bolts which also function as a hanging structure.
Layer 2 presents a star map drawn in pencil. The rear of the 3rd layer and the hanging plate are also sanded to continue the coherence as an indeterminate substrate.
This series of artworks function as a mechanics of the night sky in the form of an engineered artifact. As such, they emulate the way that theories and concepts are constructed about remote objects and events in cosmology and associated meta-narratives.

Note : In these images the nickel-silver inserts appear dark - they are in fact very shiny.
This is due to the need to reduce reflections in the perspex during photography.
