These pages show examples of installations using my 00 scale railway format. Mostly, these take the form of aerial orreries around which run elements that could best be described as 'trains of thought'. These are trains of wagons that can be seen in my triptych and 28 cms sections.
In general these contained concepts to do with astronomy and associated science. In the course of making these installations I was presented with a fair amount of technical problems which I am only now beginning to resolve. Though the engineering is fun to do!
Embedded within these projects are movies that are made specifically for the installation or documenting the installation once it is in operation. I have a small Go-Pro that I use to travel with the train as it goes around in its orbit. This gives the viewer an on-board experience which can also be transmitted to a nearby screen.
In later iterations, the engine itself is fabricated and participates in the overall look of the train.
