WELCOME TO THE MUSEUM
Whilst looking for a succinct way to explain what the Museum of Thin Objects was all about, I re-read Phil Smith’s wonderful ‘ON WALKING’ and found, on page 17, a sentence that became:
The Museum is a waltz with two whatevers, a prospect, three narrows, a fraction and four notes.
A waltz (a slow dance with ideas), with two whatevers (deep mapping & navigation), a prospect (to create a visual memory-cloth, mapping concerns such a belonging, longing, loss, identity and memory), three narrows (‘thin’ objects / old narrow boats / books), a fraction (relating to microcosms – worlds within worlds), and four notes (four projects that Navigate the Space Between BOAT ISLAND & IRON HOLE; BANK & BATH; SPRING LINE & GRAND UNION and ROSES & CASTLES).
And that’s pretty much it in a nutshell!
