From the Sublime to the Subterranean

Land Economy library 2Our locations hunt is gathering pace, and one of the things I like about being involved is getting to see some relatively unknown parts of the city. So today a great afternoon’s location hunting started at the beautifully serene Marshall Library with artist AnnaMaria Kardos researching possibilities for a new work there. Thanks so much to librarians Clemens and Lisa for your support!

Thence to the Land Economy Library (above), which is in the process of being systematically rehoused, leaving many shelves eerily empty and a perfect backdrop for an artwork or two. Thanks to librarians Simon and Georgie for being so receptive to the ALL project and our ideas.

Finally, I called in at the Cambridge Museum of Technology, looking at possibility of an underground location for Carl Gent. David at the museum very kindly showed me round several suitably claustrophobic spots from the museum’s former life as a pumping station, including the entrance to the flue (above) and a caged contraption (below) who’s use cannot be described in polite company.
