Acting out NIMR

041: Acting out NIMR

Created by Qiling Xu

The picture captures a memorable moment in early March 2015. I was at the front entrance checking whether the missing NIMR letters were back on the wall. Four colleagues from the lab appeared on their way to the lab from lunch at the canteen. They spontaneously acted out the shape of NIMR letters. The same people also created the hand-embroidered NIMR letters (Images 34-37). The photographic image was printed onto a piece of worn silk by Norma Towers, and I hand- and machine-embroidered it. The background is in human chain stitches symbolising the human story of NIMR.
