Exhibits from Cape Canaveral
More Cape Canaveral
A few more views of Cape Canaveral. The hanger in the fourth image down was where Werner Von Braun’s office was located.
Back in Europe
I arrived back in London today for a short holiday before starting a new job at the University of Brighton in January. I will miss a bunch of talented colleagues from Winnipeg but am happy to be back. I will be travelling a bit over the next few days but will try to keep posting.
Sheats Goldstein House
Some views of the underside of the main roof in John Lautner’s Sheats Goldstein House in LA (taken a few years ago), with glass tumblers cast into the concrete. I will be on the road for the next few days so please be patient with me if I am not able to post every day.
More Instrument Six
Three views of Instrument Six in action, the two top views construct paradoxical shadows that float in the air, adjacent to the surface you would expect them to land on , in real time. The bottom image is of the instrument in photographic mode where the relative parallax between shadow projections can be adjusted for pairs of stereoscopic photographs, and it uses a single lightbulb instead of a pair of candles.
Some Views of Instrument Five.
Miscellaneous Structures at Cape Canaveral
Space Ship Jacks
A small corner of the Vehicle assembly Building with a collection of jacks, access ladders etc.
More Instrument Seven
A few more recent shots of Instrument Seven, showing the back of the folding picture plane (above) and a couple more views.
