Installing the Look200 sister exhibit at Manchester Museum

Alongside the Look200 exhibit at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, I have been lucky enough to curate a small and very eclectic exhibit of objects that relate to the themes of Look200, specifically John Dalton, colour vision and the history of the treatment of disorders of the eyes in Manchester. What an honour and such fun finding the objects and gathering them together from collections across Manchester.

The Installation

 

The objects are exhibited in front of an image of the same display as it would be seen by someone with a severe form of the colour-blindness that John Dalton suffered from, deuteranopea.
