This manifestation of the installation 'The Inconstant Heavens' was constructed on the 'dark space' ground floor or the Kinetica Art Fair 2012. It consisted of an aerial model railway in 00 scale which emulated an orrery. However, instead of planets there are substituted concepts to do with the morality of the night sky. These take the form of printed text, from the astronomers and philosophers of the 17th and 18th century, floating in model tanker wagons and pulled around the trackway by a Class 20 diesel.
The stall was titled PM+NR and included the sound activated projections of the artist Nicola Rae
The featured wagons are :
'Newton : Six Primary Planets'
'Hume : The Modern System'
'Laplace : The Axis 03'
