Sculpture past and present in Derby

This is work in progress but we are delighted to be working on this project at Varsity Court in Derby with local artist Rachel Carter.

Rachel Carter - Work in Progress

A series of four sculptures, commissioned by Persimmon Homes will explore the community, wildlife and history of the Mickleover area.

The digital interpretation will provide smart phone access so visitors can discover the fabulous stories behind the commission whilst they explore the sculptures.

QR codes, NFC links and Microsoft tags will deliver local history, community engagement and links to the wider Revolutionary Journeys project.

There are closer links to the past than anyone expected. Rachel’s research uncovered photographs of a previous, long forgotten, sculpture that had stood on the location planned for one of the new pieces. Find out more here Revolutionary Journeys.
