Speculative Geologies is a collaborative project by Charlie Cousins and Fionn Duffy. They explore the performative process of research in response to a speculative meteor impact site that spans the North West Coast of Scotland.
This month we spoke to Olivia Ahmad, curator at House of Illustration, the only public art gallery in the UK dedicated to illustration. Based in Granary Square in King’s Cross since 2014, the gallery is about to celebrate its third birthday.
In Spring 2017, rarely displayed artworks from the Camden Art Collection were 3D-printed to provide a new way of looking at this fascinating collection. These 3D prints formed a ‘Museum in a Box’ which went on tour to Camden’s libraries and Great Ormond Street Hospital. During workshops children and their families could touch the 3D models and listen to artists’ audio interpretations of each object. The combination of the objects and audio then inspired stories, poems and sounds in response to the collection. Local resident Angela shares her experience of taking part in the Museum in a Box workshops with her son Lorenzo.
