A stronghold and public observatory in the Dutch city of Utrecht. Today it is a museum all about stars and dark holes, slowly unfolding the universe to its visitors.
For the entrance of the museum JVS was commissioned to make a site specific installation on the table of Buys Ballot, the founder of the observatory. In the film visitors get to understand what Ballot has done for the observatory and science in general. The film uses the same lighting situation as the physical situation of the table, so all elements are blown over the table, telling his story.
