Richard explains the inspiration behind this video.

'I have always loved projects that play with viewers' frame of reference. Years ago I watched the amazing Fred Astaire ceiling dance from the film Royal Wedding, which was created with a rotating room. Then, more recently, I saw the fabulous Penn and Teller clip that makes use of a similar principle. Corkology is a simple, fun, demonstration of the same idea."
