"Inspired by the objects, history and surroundings of the Maritime Museum, these poems explore how people, animals and plants become objects behind glass. They invite you to question how the city exists in the same space as nature, by viewing exhibits from the museum side by side with exhibits from the city and its surrounding natural spaces." From Exhibits from the Maritime Museum & the City (2023).
