Title: Books of Blood: Objects Lost and Found
Date: 23rd November 2017
This event sees mysterious, unique, and bloody objects ‘lost’ in the Science Museum’s archives uncovered in a way that enables the curious history of each piece, and its relationship to blood and the body, to be sensationally recovered or ‘found’. This ‘show and tell’ workshop allows for writing and drawing activities, based on Clive Barker’s notion of the body as a ‘book of blood’ that can be ‘read’. Our participants’ responses to the curious objects (in words and/or images) will form diverse narratives on ‘being human’ that will be preserved in the public space for others to enjoy.
This ‘Show and Tell’ workshop is facilitated by Dr John Rimmer and Dr Sam George.
Further details will be revealed!
