Mini Museums Inspired by Patrick Pound

“My work treats the world as if it were a puzzle. The idea is everything goes with something else. Nothing is connected until you put them together," Patrick Pound.

In the exhibition Patrick Pound: On Reflection students discovered fascinating collections of objects and images by an artist who makes wondrous ‘museums of things. They played games to forge imaginative associations between images and objects, and tested their creative thinking skills to create their own mini museums. They selected from a treasure trove of objects to develop strange and unusual themes, then carefully arranged and displayed their finds. After learning about framing compositions they photographed their collections.
