1 object explored for 7 days, 24 hours a day, by a rolling team of researchers from the arts and sciences.
Object Retrieval is a project by artist Joshua Sofaer and is curated by Simon Gould in association with UCL Museums & Collections. The website for the project has been created by the Ligatus Research Unit. Object Retrieval has a simple premise - to uncover as much information as possible about one object from UCL’s Museums & Collections in the space of 7 days.
By inviting as many experts from as many subjects as we can muster as well as members of the general public to explore the object, we hope to amass a huge, potentially limitless biography of the object. We hope that these contributions will include scientific analyses of the object, personal anecdotes, drawings, anthropological accounts and many many more types of information.
