In 2009 I designed materials for an exhibition titled “Icons of the Steam Age” for a small museum in north-east England – and working with a small team converted a storeroom into a gallery to display them in. The text was written by the curator and project team, and the objects and materials belong to the museum.
The quality of light in the storeroom wasn’t ideal for photography. We’d had our eyes on this through the summer while building another exhibition, and were pretty sure that with a few weeks work we could add a permanent gallery, or at least an extra temporary exhibition.
The transformation complete, with the displays and interpretive materials in-situ.
