The Polymorphic Carbon Library: The Common Room of the Great North
One of Newcastle’s most significant historic buildings is set to reopen this summer, with a festival that will celebrate the North East’s reputation for pioneering engineering achievements.
The Polymorphic Carbon Library is a new installation created by local artists Charles Danby and Rob Smith and is something you need to cast your eyes upon this summer.
The installation uses the molecular structure of carbon to create an interactive artwork that captures live data readings showing the levels of carbon around it, and incorporates artefacts from The Common Room’s collection, which is one of the most important collections of mining engineering materials anywhere in the world.
Sounds pretty cool, right?
This event is free for all starting on Monday 26 July running right the way through to Sunday 19 December.
