the chair is an integral part of the museum in miniature project. the project is a co-production between the derby silk mill museum and air arts at the london road community hospital in derby.
the brief for the chair was to be a chair within which the objects from them museum could be moved around. the clear acrylic back being animated by installed leds in the base of the acrylic.
working with the workshop manger at the museum i programmed and fitted the leds into the chair.
i also worked for the museum at the hospital taking the chair around the three wards and speaking with patients sharing the objects from within the chair.
