Shared Vision - Making the Visible Invisible

 

THE GLASS LIBRARY

 

A project that makes sense of complex layers and references both historical and contemporary within the site with the intention of making visible the ordinary and insignificant.

 

Glass boxes (size and shape based on archaeological storage boxes used in archaeological sheds throughout Britain) containing objects and references from the following sources. These might include:

 

- Iron Age finds represented in the Arbury and Kings Hedges area.

 

- Contemporary detritus selected from the Arbury Park site

 

- Personal histories using photographs, letters, archival material relating to Arbury Park and surrounding areas taken from the Cambridgeshire collection

 

- Personal histories using Unwins archival material content
