A History Of The World In 100 Objects:
For a new brief, ‘Everything About One Thing’ an ISTD competition, I’ve started to explore the theme of collection. To map everything about one thing is to gain a broad understanding of subject matter, properties, history and context of an item and display it in a comprehensive way.
The ‘History Of The World In 100 Objects’ book that accompanies both the BBC Radio 4 series and the collection in the British Museum is just one such comprehensive collection. We are guided through time, from the unimaginable 2,000,000BC to 2010AD. It is a very human journey, displaying a landmark selection of objects from our time on Earth.
