Behind the ‘Tesseract’ Scene in Interstellar SPOILER ALERT

In the almost final scene of Christopher Nolan’s 2014 film “Interstellar” Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and TARS detached themselves from Endurance and fell into the black hole Gargantua. They were both seemingly rescued by the bulk beings and brought into their three dimensional representation of five dimensional space, the Tesseract.

“The Tesseract is a means of communication for the bulk beings to express action through gravity with NASA. The bulk beings can perceive five dimensions as opposed to four, able to see every moment in the past, present, and future as well as influence gravity within any of those time frames. […] The tesseract allowed Cooper to communicate with Murphy Cooper [his daughter] in various time periods, presenting time itself as a dimension rather than linear. Everything is linked by the strings of time, which Cooper can manipulate. The beings made this comprehensible to Cooper by allowing him to physically interact with the Tesseract.” wiki

For this stunning scene Nolan and his special effects team opted to create a massive set with which the actors could physically interact instead of a digital effects abuse.
Here there are some shots of this impressive set.
