Museums are increasingly questioning and reinvigorating their programmes in order to maintain relevance and to reach wider audiences in more meaningful ways. These aspects have been the subject of many conferences world wide in recent years and collaborations with artists are now seen as a significant way in which a greater engagement with audiences can be achieved. This installation work was made at the invitation of the Newcastle Region Museum for an exhibition titled The Museum as Muse and was aimed at highlighting aspects of the museum’s collection and presenting them in a new and innovative manner.
