049: Batman over NIMR

Created by Robin Lovell-Badge and Angela Cheung

This photo from 1995 was printed onto linen poster cloth by Joe Brock. The batman logo refers to the use of the site for some scenes in the film ‘Batman Begins’.

Robin Lovell-Badge suggested creating a patch for the Batman movie. However, we had already collected one hundred patches and the assembly work had started on Saturday. One possibility was to put bats on existing patches such as the lab coat. Robin had a look at the patch on Sunday and left with a piece of lab coat, some paints and brushes. On the next day, he came with a piece of cloth heavy with painted bats. They looked exquisite. Angela Cheung carefully cut out the bats and stitched them onto two adjacent patches: this one and the lab coat (Image 50). We now have the Batman story on our canvas.
