2001: A Space Odyssey hotel suite recreation, by Simon Birch

The hotel suite from 2001: A Space Odyssey, were astronaut David Bowman (Keir Dullea), ended up after his epic journey through the star gate, has been recreated in intricate detail by Simon Birch, a Hong Kong based British artist, at the 14th Factory, in Los Angeles, an arts project he opened earlier this month.

In something of an intriguing coincidence, Birch collaborated on the project with Paul Kember, and architect, whose uncle, and great uncle, had worked with Stanley Kubrick, on designing the very same hotel room, for the film.

If there’s such a thing as a bucket-list for fan of “2001”, then seeing this, is now on that list.
