Press release: Occupying a domestic void, a workshop or retreat is exposed – a secret space housing a private endeavour. Through the evidence of an absent character the film examines a childhood fantasy made real, illustrating astronomical measurement or an environment for fictional celestial navigation. Models inspired by renaissance scientific speculations and the pre-telescopic architectural instruments of Sawai Jai Singh populate an attic space, and describe a personalised universe of home made rules. The fabricated cosmos operates as an unfinished loft conversion, where sci-fi cliches play out with amateur special effects. (c) production still and words by Nicholas Mortimer.
