I have always been fascinated with watching machines made from bits and pieces that take us on a journey sometimes like this one, into orbit and at other times to nowhere in particular other than into our imagination. Through special effects the magic of the moment is captured. Such machines always have "something" falling that sets off chain reactions. Interest aroused, in anticipation I await curiously for the reactions to be triggered again and again.
For Ian Burn's extraordinary installation From Orbit, it was a toy falling to a conveyor belt and past a video camera that captures the "flight" which then appears on the screen. An elaborate way to "take off" at AGNSW!
