  • L'Innocenza Perduta (Lost Innocence): Conserving a Carrara Marble Statue

    Cleere, Chris (1997)
    This paper describes the conservation of 'L'Innocenza Perduta (Lost Innocence)', a marble statue by the Florentine sculptor Emilio Santarelli. As the statue is on open display at University College London and is accessible to the public, it has been vulnerable to destructive elements, including airborne pollutants and vandalism. Cleaning was done by steam and poultice. However, during the cleaning process it became clear that the capital and plinth required more complicated conservation treat...

    Why Collect Science?

    Alberti, Samuel J M M (2017)
    In this critical assessment of the ‘museology of science’ I cherry-pick recent scholarship and practice to unpack the functions of science collections. Some practices (exhibition, engagement, study) have already attracted considerable attention, others not yet (storage); but all tend to be considered separately as case studies from particular institutions and for particular disciplinary audiences. Juxtaposing different reasons to collect reveals both the tensions inherent in science collectio...

    Voices Falling Through the Air

    Elliman, Paul (2012)
    Where am I? Or as the young boy in Jules Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth calls back to his distant-voiced companions: ‘Lost… in the most intense darkness.’ ‘Then I understood it,’ says the boy, Axel, ‘To make them hear me, all I had to do was to speak with my mouth close to the wall, which would serve to conduct my voice, as the wire conducts the electric fluid’ (Verne 1864). By timing their calls, the group of explorers work out that Axel is separated from them by a distanc...

    A Nanochemist and a Nanohumanist Take a Walk Through the German Museum: An Analysis of the Popularization of Nanoscience and Technology in Germany

    Youngman, Paul A; Fruk, Ljiljana (2014)
     This paper is an analysis of the NST (Nanoscience and Technology) exhibit at the DM (Deutsches Museum) from the point of view of a German studies scholar and a nanoscientist. Established in 2005, the exhibit and its associated lectures, tours, and documentation purport to make the public more familiar with the new technology and its applications. Our task was to evaluate the science as it is presented and, equally importantly, the story the museum tells about NST, since science can never be ...
