Dust Defying Gravity

Grace Weir

Description

Dust defying gravity consists of a single 4 minute tracking shot that traces through the rooms at Dunsink Observatory, documenting the aging telescopes and measuring instruments arrayed throughout the building. As the camera passes over a mechanical model of the solar system, the dust in the air of the room becomes visible, floating and scintillating like a field of stars.’
