A mere two weeks after we open heavy demolition work in the basement underneath the Grant Museum kicks up plaster dust inside the display cases. Nobody is to blame in particular but I thought I’d share these images to get the dust out of my system (and our cases).
If only dust had some kind of market value?
Actually we could pretend that this is a collaborative effort with the Wellcome Collection's current exhibition Dirt.
Is it ironic that our display case discussing the risk we put specimens at when we display them is now covered in dust from the inside?
The other 300 images are available on demand in a hard back book with a dust wrapper.
More dust on the inside of cases Our temporary exhibition continues until the dust settles, in the meantime come by the Grant Museum to see staff doing a lot of dusting with the occassional slow shaking of the head.
Dust related punnery welcome in the comments, particularly song lyrics with dust hilariously replacing words that end in ust. 'Dust the two of us', 'It's just. A little Dust. No real big thing' etc.
There. I feel all better. Don’t forget to go along to see our sister exhibition Dirt at the Wellcome.
