Mini Post No.8 – Ghosts of Logos past



September 4, 2014

As part of my internship I have been repeating and expanding on some of the experiments into cleaning that they did during the POPART project. One part has been repeating experiments on real-world objects that have a surface texture – more on that in a later post though!

The unusual object I’ve been using to carry out this experiment is one of the very 1st laptops brought into the museum. A beast of a machine weighing in at just under 12Lbs (5kg) with 20mb of storage space 1mb of RAM…  and it as a great glimpse into the museums past – a very nice, minimal V&A logo!
