Explore the making of the Our Place in Space sculpture trail

So what does it take to bring the solar system down to earth? Find out as we share some behind-the-scenes footage from MDM props who have helped us deliver an astronomical mission.

MDM Props is an industry leader in all aspects of art manufacture, scenic construction, model and prop-making. Founded in 1993, it has grown to become one of the best-known names in the fields for specialist exhibition, theatre, leisure and art fabrication.

In January, we visited their London studio for our first in-person preview of the sculptures. Explore the process behind the creation of these iconic installations and watch as Oliver sees his vision come to life for the first time.

During our next visit in February, the team was back to see the progress and to work on a very unique piece that will sit at the start of the trail. Watch a sneak-peek below!

Commencing countdown...all systems go! See you in April!
