Scattered between the wagons are text and graphics to do with aromatic hydrocarbons and their associations. Hydrocarbons are found everywhere in Space, both in molecular clouds and in remote planets. The ensemble acts as if it has traveled through one of these regions and collected hydrocarbons in its passage. Many of these molecules act as the pre-cursors in the development of Life.
This series of art works function as a commentary on the methodology of contemporary scientific model-making. In that instance we have seen the inadequacies of the process multiplied by the extensive use of computers. In these works, that potential for error is overcome by the use of the phenomenology of the model railway environment and associated mechanics.
