This week the Centre for Research Collections hosted a conference bringing interdisciplinary world class scholars from various institutions together to discuss state of the art research on creative industries with a focus on the relationship between space and place.
Looking at the relationship between space and place, the Digital Innovation team were tasked with developing an asset suite and a narrative direction for the conference artwork, tying together the Edinburgh Futures Institute redevelopment with innovation and interdisciplinarity.
Rachel Hosker, Louise Williams and Clare Button from CRC could not have been more generous with their time and knowledge as we were putting together ideas and suggested some excellent candidates: Conrad Hal Waddington, Norman Dott, Gertrude Helzfeld and Isabella Pringle. All associated with the Old Royal Infirmary on Lauriston Place and all alumni or former employees of the University of Edinburgh.
Barry Topping, College videographer put together a video, we created take-home postcard sets from vintage ORI images from the Lothian Health Services Archive (thanks Louise!), a digital timeline of the history of the ORI and a set of posters.
Take a look at the timeline here
(TIP: you can shrink the timeline down using the minus arrow to see it all on one screen!)
