Six local artists were given exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the Somerset Heritage Centre’s extensive stores. Inspired by these hidden collections, they produced work across a range of media including poetry, film, photography, print and sculpture. It is on display now at the Museum of Somerset in an exhibition titled New Dimensions.
In this series of short films the artists explain more about the objects that captured their imaginations and the creative process that followed.
