|The museum is currently hosting an art installation mounted by their Artist in Residence Cathy Hayes, who prefers the title Timekeeper in Residence to match the subject of her work entitled A Report on Progress which catalogues the variety of ways Time and Progress have been modeled, shaped, symbolised, illustrated in different eras by scientists, philosophers, theologians, historians, and artists. This photo includes planetary models, timelines, arrows, and lots of red string linking artefacts. Fortunately there is a Timekeeper website that links to explanations through the project including a link to the artist's A Storm is Brewing blog. I am going to study all of this before a return visit.|

|When all is said and done, this bird has remembered |
to bring an essential umbrella for his eternal life in London.
