Lustre Kendal Museum, Cumbria, 2015. Commissioned by Legion TV, London.

Commissioned by Legion TV, London (Kiera Blakey & Matthew Hughes) and supported by Arts Council England.

Lustre is a twelve month exhibition at Kendal Museum, Cumbria. As the Museum embarks on a new phase digitising its collections, Lustre aims to examine questions about the implications and possibilities that arise when sharing digital collections.

The project consists of a digital video and printed guide displayed alongside the permanent museum collections and focuses on two specific areas – Geology and Archaeology. The works result from a two week residency at Kendal Museum in 2015.
