Flightdeck

 Our installation in the Artbox is based on an early space travel flightdeck.  This new work includes a wraparound console wedged between a carpeted floor and a ceiling held up by Acro props. 

You can look through the window, between the colonnaded ceiling props, and participate in the journey of a lifetime.  Beyond the flat-pack flightdeck you can view your destination displayed on a magnified windscreen.  An you can operate your controls via luminated dials on your dashboard.  Our flightdeck is an altarpiece, a testament to old technology, framed and supported by temporary pillars and almost ready for take-off.

This installation continues our exploration of armchair tourism, previously realised in a series of large scale installations.  Our Artbox is a condensed look at a wider world through a focussed portal.
