The young JCM and his cousin Jemima are reputed
to have experimented with hot air balloons In this
four storey stairwell.
Jemima has recorded, in watercolour, similar
experiments involving hot air balloons at Killearn
(the estate of her future father-in-law, John Blackburn).
This stairwell is now access to the flat of Angus Reid,
artist and poet. In this view we see part of Reid's
installation "Domecstatic", larger-than-life silhouettes are
framed by four poems that seek company as they climb
towards the light.
