Mrs Bloom's Lunar Capsule

"Space Soon"In association with Arts Catalyst
The Roundhouse, London 08/09/06 - 09/09/06

I built a Victorian butterfly-powered spaceship reminiscent of that in Jules Verne’s “Earth To The Moon.” My studio was an outbuilding on farmland in rural Ceredigion, West Wales, and the construction took place during my honeymoon.

The module was hinged with a clasp like a jewellery box and the instruments in the plush velour upholstered interior were unreliable. Mrs Bloom had a lot of time on her hands while she waited for touchdown on the moon.
