The Strike at Imperial Typewriters Exhibition

I have been fortunate enough to be able to contribute to a great exhibition about the Strike at Imperial Typewriters.

The exhibition is at the Newarke Houses Museum in Leicester, and will be open until 26th October 2019. You can read more about the exhibition here.

The project is initiated by Divya Ghelani, and produced by B3 Media. They approached me to make the Typewriter in Residence. The typewriter is a hacked Imperial Model 80, made in the Leicester factory during the 1970’s, that allows visitors to find out more about the strike from the perspective of those who were there via a collection of transcribed oral histories created by Divya and the team. To produce the typewriter I also worked with Vinay Tailor, who developed the soft ware that displays the transcribed stories.
