‘A Million Miles From Home’ Exhibition @ The Old Post Office – Pictures
Visitors at the Private View on Thursday
The exhibition view
‘The Old Gaol’ is on the left and the ‘domestic area’ on the right. There are boxes with creatures in the front of the gaol and one of the ‘Future uniform’ designs on its rooftop. The giant letter under the lampshade resembles a decorative carpet. Other ‘Origin-Destination’ works and The ‘Imaging places’ installation are further to the right.

The ‘Imaging Places’ installation, detail
One of the ‘Future uniforms’ is combined with the lion face belonging to one of the ‘Creatures’. The shape in the back is made with the ‘future fabric’ produced with used bus tickets. The bamboo ‘growing’ behind the wall comes from the ‘Save the pandas, save the world’ Protest Project.
On the left is a pile of boxes with the quarantine for the creatures on the top, behind is the Romney Marsh Tall Tales display with maps and the Control Point to the right..
