Duncan Jones, Ridley Scott, David Bowie – the list could go on. Missions to outer space have inspired countless artists of the 21st Century, especially in recent years – and there seems to be be no signs of that stopping. Joseph Popper, a design interactions student of the Royal College of Art has designed and built a set simulating a spacecraft that would, theoretically, take just one person on a solo venture into outer space.
Joseph is incredibly inventive and judging by his other films, he has a penchant for crafting some impeccable props and sets for the films he makes. But the best thing about his work has to be the impeccable design skills mingling nicely with some endearing amateur film techniques involving fishing wire and glass. In his own words: “The space capsule film set stands as an artifact of the filmmaking process. Constructed using low-end and found materials, it encapsulates the honesty of the project aesthetic: zero gravity, zero budget.”
