Does this room look familiar?

Part of a much larger art project called the 14th Factory in Los Angeles’ Lincoln Heights district, this is a faithful recreation of the bedroom from 2001: A Space Odyssey by artist Simon Birch and architect Paul Kember, whose uncle and great uncle were draughtsmen on Stanley Kubrick’s movie and worked on the original set.

Part of the attraction appears to be that visitors can interact with the room, sit on the chairs and lie on the bed, which is a rare treat for Kubrick fans as the director was notoriously obsessed with destroying all props and sets once he’d used them.
