'The Box' Portal Window
International artist Terry Chipp is renowned for his ability to capture a likeness of people at their point of transition between two worlds.
While some hesitate to leave the shadowed, womb-like safety of ‘The Box’ others may choose, whether boldly or tentatively, to break into the light of a wider world. For some the Portal Window of ‘The Box’ is a place to observe the outer world or present themselves in a display of finery.
Whatever their demeanour Terry Chipp will be on hand at our Steampunk Social to capture their moment of decision with his visual recording device.
Participants will be required to commit about one minute to the process.
A copy of the image will be sent to the victim (sorry) sitter free of charge. Some of the collected images will be transformed into fine works of art which will be available for sale in the future.
Verne Industries is a technological and aetherial creation of a mister Mr James Verne. He has brought together some of the most creative and technologically advanced thinkers, to create machines and devices. These will astound you with their abilities to deal with the forces and problems we can see - but also the forces and problems we cannot see. We have the very great honour of working for Her Majesty Queen Victoria and the British Government. We aim to protect the Commonwealth and all its subjects from the horrors both seen and unseen that the world of the 1800s has to offer. The villainous intentions of foreign powers are always at the forefront of our thoughts. The invisible enemy is also a constant threat. The threat of which we speak is that of the malign magical kingdom. Dr Nicodemus Dandelion is the head of our creative technology department, pushing the boundaries of our knowledge into areas that are both dark and menacing. You are about to enter a world of sheer wonderment, buckle up and enjoy the ride!
