exhibition and installations

Artists from Cambridge and elsewhere in the UK have been selected whose work relates directly or indirectly to the museum building, its spaces and sound and its collections of 20th century technologies.

Several contrasting works start from collections of obsolete but working technology, revealing hidden sounds and responses, while other works make a direct response to the scales of the space and the presentation of the building, shaped by decades of utility, reworking and the materiality of water in particular.
