Stephen Spicer Untitled/Sky Machine 2020 Pencil, ink, paint on paper,
45 x 45 cm, Artist collection, Bath.


Description/Operation: This is the full-size illustration/diagram from the front showing the planes inside to give a three-dimensional effect.
Front panel is to the left , rear of the machine to the right.
Operation: the machine is situated within a larger space where in idle mode it projects clouds and illusory birds on the walls and ceiling. When a coin is inserted, and the interior of the machine observed through the peephole, then the observer sees the clouds parting, the sun rising and getting brighter. Animated birds fly through the air. Slowly day turns to night and the moon rises. Shooting stars appear and then the machine goes to sleep, waiting for another coin to awaken it.
