Canal-level entrance

Our aim was to investigate the variance in worth - both monetary and social - that occurs over the lifetime of an everyday object. We aimed to deconstruct the processes involved in reporting the news, printing money and weaving clothing by questioning the traditional materials and methods used, by adapting the context, and by reassessing the role of the bespoke in all three. By providing spaces for public interaction with our discoveries, we sought to return some of these processes' lost relevance, and ultimately better the social cohesion of the City of Nottingham.
