The Telescope

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.

The Telescope looks through a broken telescope at a world which responds to being watched, a reflection of the watcher. A series of magnetic and chemical events are enacted under a microscope camera and presented live as a documentary account of an uncertain landscape.
