Object Retrieval

Object R TextObject Retrieval objects

This week (15 – 21 October) I will be participating in a project called Object Retrieval at UCL in London (Gower Street, WC1E 6BT). I have been slected as a ‘Research Provocateur’ to work with the object for the duration of the project so as well as posting here,  I will be regually updating the Object Retrieval website :

www.objectretrieval.com

Object Retrieval has a simple premise – to uncover as much information as possible about one object from UCL’s Museums & Collections in the space of 7 days by a rolling team of researchers from the arts and sciences

By inviting as many experts from as many subjects as well as members of the general public to explore the object, we hope to amass a huge, potentially limitless biography of the object. We hope that these contributions will include scientific analyses of the object, personal anecdotes, drawings, anthropological accounts and many more types of information.
