Presented in its hand-cranked version, this dual slide-projection installation with a rotating disc pays tribute to the under-recognised women scientists of space stations. Archival photographs of women scientists, craters on the moon named after them and early 1900s photographic plates of stars examined by deaf astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt oscillate in concert with one another.
