From the artist:
As part of the Outside In Exploring Collections course at West Dean, I asked the question "Who is Edward James? Collector? Patron? Poet?". My response was not a 500 word biography but in interactive visual bite-size pieces. Each part of his life is interwoven using threads from West Dean tapestry studio, and just like the trunks, and papers wrapped in tissue paper, found after Edward James' death, are attached to a flint from the West Dean estate.
