An affectionate farewell to the 90,000 35mm transparencies in the library’s slide collection. They are a record how the history of art and design was taught at London Met and its heritage institutions. Slides were used in lectures from the early 1980s until the advent of cheap digital cameras around 2005. The installation concentrates on the physicality of an analogue image bank, with projections, stacks of index cards and mock slide lectures.  Until 28th June 2013.
