By painting significant props from influential childhood science fiction films and TV, Norton has referenced a number of special science fiction moments, when the individual narratives deal with the interface between the inside and outside of deep space. Together the paintings turn the gallery into a ‘Loading Bay’ of science fiction’s past; the jumping off point for a generation of science fiction obsessed kids.
