Playing With Time by Alice Highet and Dr Beth Bromley and Scaling The Heights by Stephen Livingstone

Two for the price of one at the Oriental Museum in Durham!

Playing With Time used just three simple exhibits to get visitors thinking about the nature and physics of time. A highly magnified photograph of household dust (a prime example of entropy) was turned into a kaleidoscope to encourage people to think of the present moment as an ever changing snapshot of multiple elements.

Scaling The Heights was a hilarious photographic/book/installation using action men figures to recreate famous mountain climbs. Their mountains were the books and bookshelves in notable mountaineering libraries.

My challenge is to weave that into this week’s yoga classes!
