The Lesser Spotted Collectors' Club
The year is 2050. At-Bristol has become a dilapidated dumping ground for objects, documents and media. In particular, there is a wealth of knowledge on birds, one of the rarest lifeforms now seen...
This immersive exploration took over At Bristol in May 2010, reflecting not only the aesthetic aspects of the site but also the behaviour and activities normally displayed by visitors.Wandering where they liked, watching scientific demonstrations, talking to their friends and playing in order to learn, audiences were invited to ponder how our relationship with the natural world has become a manageable, framed commodity. In juxtaposition with a plethora of media, the show ended with a real sense of awe and wonder in the presence of a live eagle owl.
This show is suitable for ages 14+. We are exploring ways to develop this show for other science centres and museums. Find us on Facebook under The Lesser Spotted Collectors' Club.
