How can you make tangible the story of your work?

In 2019, the School of Health in Social Science at the University of Edinburgh asked this question. Over the last 12 months, in collaboration with Invisible Grail, they have designed and created a new art installation to express their story and make tangible the narrative of the School.

Now unveiled, the coat brings together the words, stories and aspirations of people from across the School, celebrating what they do, who they are, and what they stand for.

If you were to re-imagine the story of your work as an object, what would it be?

This week’s G&T is given over to the coat. You can read the full story here: This is us.

The idea of the Coat as a metaphor for the School’s narrative came from the Curating our Narrative project developed by colleagues at Invisible Grail in partnership with the School.
