The "prototype" for "The Centre of the Universe" continues to take shape. The dish, like the tower, again constructed flat pack style, slotted together from pieces of ply and a central hub, perches provisionally atop its spiral tower, awaiting its chicken wire lining and hillbilly electronics.

One sad fact of scale is that the beautiful curving spiral, made in this version from strips of hardboard, will not be possible on the larger version to be built in the park. There it will revert to flat panels due to the restrictions of the budget.
