Imagination is the source of every human achievement. It’s the one thing that I believe we are systematically jeopardizing in the way we educate our children and ourselves.
Sir Ken Robinson

What does your imagination look like?

Goldie worked with families around the UK to define the people, places, and things that make up the universe of our imagination. Taking inspiration from children’s miniature make-believe play like dollhouses and toy cars, she developed the ultimate blank canvas for our collective imagination- the Imagination Lab. The lab was used as the centre of interactive installations that allowed visitors to bring their imagination to life.

Goldie took the Imagination Lab to Herne Bay’s Giant Picnic on Sunday 30 August 2015, the London Design Festival in September 2015 and to Best Fest in Newington, Ramsgate on Wednesday 28 October 2015.
