The Telescope

Tim Spooner

The Telescope by Tim Spooner


The telescope underwent a traumatic relocation and its lenses and mirrors became hopelessly rearranged. It was impossible to tell anymore whether the view through the telescope was of the surface of a distant planet or a microscopic reflection of the interior of the viewer’s own eye. Nevertheless this new world was studied and documented thoroughly.

In this metaphysical puppet show, a series of magnetic and chemical events are enacted under a microscope camera and presented live as a documentary account of an uncertain landscape.

Tim Spooner works from London on correspondences between the physical world and the world of ideas.

This event has a limited capacity.
