New Project Volunteer Researchers

We’ve had a great response to our renewed call for project volunteer researchers – thank you again to the Antique Trade Gazette and the Press Team at the University of Leeds for their help in promoting the project. Our latest volunteer researcher is Patricia Walsh, who is helping to gather information on Antique Dealers from the historic trade directories in the North West of England. These research activities are invaluable to the project and will help to contribute to the massive amount of data we need for the interactive project website….so thank you Patricia!

As well as helping with the research on the project Patricia is also a multi-media artist, working with audio, video and photography. She creates atmospheric and reflective art-works, that feature music, voice, found sounds, texts or composite imagery, all of which attempt to bridge the shifts of time. Her works often suggest the possibility of other dimensions, unseen presences and immeasurable distances, and have resonance too with unruly, fractured or discordant recollections. Most recently she contributed to and curated a Circuit Bridges/Vox Novus sound-event in Preston, which brought together new works from selected audio artists based in the USA, UK and Europe. The culminating creative exchange concert will also be presented at MC Gallery, New York, in September 2015.

Patricia is also a graduate of the University of Central Lancashire, in Preston, and has a BA in Fine Art. She is currently studying on the MA Antiques course, at UCLan, where her fascination with the world of antiques, dealers and collectors finds connections with her interest in archives and the documenting and recording of history.

Thank you again to Patricia…we could not make progress on the project without this very generous help.
