My son is very scientifically minded for a little chap of 21 months... He loves his ELC Marble Run, which one day I'll replace with the classic Galt version. [Ok, I want the classic Galt version.] Today he took it apart, minutes after I'd lovingly set it all up, fitted these two pieces together and was utterly absorbed with them for quite some time. Blowing through them to make the paddles whizz round seemed to be the most fun. Then it struck me how, when combined, these parts look very much like the kind of equipment that schools tv science broadcasts of the 1970s were full of... and so I set about trying to photograph them in a suitably minimal fashion. I can almost hear the narrator in my mind, even after all these years - "...the temperature has risen to 43 degrees, write that down."
