During a visit to the Science Museum in search of some inspiration relevant to my theme, I came across some contained displays of solar scenes contained within a window. The idea of something big being contained within a box really appealed to me, I also liked the aesthetic of the nylon strings within the displays, they seemed to create an almost handmade sort of feel
