See one of MOSI’s fascinating handling collection objects brought to life through projection and audio.

22 November 2013 – 11 May 2014
Choose from 18 carefully selected objects from MOSI’s (Museum of Science & Industry) handling collection, and watch it be brought to life through projection and audio.

All of these objects are, or were at one time, considered ‘everyday’. The stories they tell are about ordinary people throughout Manchester’s rich industrial past. As conduits for these stories, the objects, which the public can touch and hold, become cultural relics to be cherished and treasured.

The artists, Lucy and Barney Heywood from Stand + Stare, hope the exhibition will encourage visitors to consider everyday relics in their own lives.
