NIMR canvas

On the 1 April, the NIMR ceased to exist and became the Crick Mill Hill Laboratory. To mark this event, Qiling Xu organised a collaborative textile artwork to be created as a lasting memento. Each research lab, support section and club was invited to create an artwork on a small square of cloth, and these were then stitched together to form a single work that celebrates the science, life and ethos of NIMR.

The NIMR Canvas contains 100 squares and this section of the blog will feature an image of each one of them, plus a short description.

Qiling Xu said:

The response was tremendous and people from many different parts of the institute were involved in creating the 100 patches. I was really impressed by their imagination and creativity, the professional finish and high quality of the patches, and the many hours that people put into their contributions. Every patch has a story to tell.

Articles about the canvas have appeared in The Node and in the MRC Insight blog.
