Object Retrieval: The ultimate interdisciplinary research project
...what happens when you bring together minds from such diverse specialisations and focus them on the same item?
- asks the Londonist.
Found while searching online for something else is this fascinating participatory art project organised by Joshua Sofaer. Visitors (passers-by) are encouraged - along with specialists from across the arts and sciences - to contribute to the interpretation of a single object from the UCL collections; to map its biography and unlock its hidden meanings.
Worth checking out methinks should you find yourself in or around Gower Street over the next few days.
