This series of artworks model concepts describing the night sky. They can stand as discrete entities but can also be assembled with others to produce 'trains of thought' that can participate in orreric installations. The intention is to 'model', in the literal sense, the data and associated theories using the 00 scale model railway system.

These wagons were developed around the nomenclature of interstellar environment.

This wagon has a listings of the reddest stars in the night sky. Each of these lists explores the measurement of Space in terms of its most extreme populations. The names of the objects are displayed next to graphic abstractions in scalar relationships.

Please see my section on Installations to see how I have approached this aspect using aerial trackways.
