The Clockwork Garden at The Bowes Museum


The Bowes Museum, County Durham
28th July – 5th November 2017

Drifting down from somewhere far out in the black of space a strange metal seed will settle into the exhibition space of the Bowes Museum and unfurl into a beautiful interactive Clockwork Garden Exhibition. It needs to learn the secrets that make our human gardens so full of life and joy and beauty and to take them back to its own planet which has no gardens of its own. But will the ominous Orange Moon and its shadowy Mechanical Grizzlies find the seed before it is ready to return?

Only you can hold them at bay and fill the seed with enough wonder and joy yo send it safely back into space…
