Research & development project that investigated the Dutch perspective box 'A Peepshow with Views of the Interior of a Dutch House' by Samuel van Hoogstraten at the National Gallery as an inspiration for design for performance.  The perspectival drawing within the box was re-interpreted using drawing, paper cut textiles and model box techniques to create a series of paper model boxes, textiles, costumes, film & live performance. The work was shown at the National Gallery London and University of the Arts London.
