Cumbrian Alchemy

In 2011 the University of Cumbria funded a project to bring an American artist, Bryan McGovern Wilson to Cumbria. In collaboration with Professor Robert Williams, the pair explored the relationships between the Nuclear Industry of the Energy Coast (eg. Heysham & Sellafield, & Energus), the archaeology & folklore of North Lancashire/Cumbria (eg. St. Patrick’s Chapel, Heysham: The stone graves & the hogback stone, Long Meg & her daughters), scientific figures from the region (eg. John Dalton: Atomic Theory, Michael Faraday, Sir Richard Owen) and an interest in working with impossible materials.
