Out of The Ark

Last week an Ark arrived on the lawn of the Musuem, the culmination of the Ciao Festival. Children across Oxfordshire have been taking part in workshops based on the question of what they would take with them into a post-carbon future, and what leave behind. The Ark is an exhibition and performance space that is showing the results of their work.

It is very interesting to see how well the lawn works as an additional exhibition space, and how having a large, colourful and unexpected object in front of the facade makes passers-by look again at a building that may have become simply part of the scenery. We will have the opportunity to see this happening again very soon, when the Ghost Forest – another exhibit with an environmental theme – is installed in early July.
