Sunday. We were up early and at Vindolanda meeting Barbara Birley before it the site opened to the public. In the Education Room we installed the Vindolanda door sculpture which looked fabulous! Here we had recycled the Vindolanda office shredded waste, recycled it into postcards and then used these to write about life today as modern Frontier Voices. There are some super examples - go and see them! These become ‘stones’ in our gatehouse wall. Gatehouses allowed communication through the Wall and here we are using it as a metaphor to capture today’s Frontier Voices communicating their ideas inspired by the Roman Wall. This will be up until 23rd November and then it moves to the Sill for the final exhibition.
Then there was time for a quick catch-up with Barbara before I was off to the Sill Discovery Centre for the rest of the day.
