Tom came to me with the idea of creating a spinning satellite of junk in space. My initial job was to work out a way of achieving this on very little budget. After lost of uncertainty of whether or not the job would go ahead, plans went into action and a team of students from Tech Arts at Wimbledon College of Art came together to make it happen.
Every one had a hand in gathering the masses of retro junk it took to cover the satellite, which was extremely heavy when finished and took a lot of man power to spin in front of the blue screen. A second structure was made that allowed us to huddle inside to operate rudimentary puppets and make objects spin as if powered by the satellite.
