Work and Projects

Research under glass; image by Angela Sutton-Vane 2015My work is evolving as I move away from permanent, organisation-based roles towards freelance and project work that ties into my interests of research on display; organisational memory; artefacts as intermediaries; material culture; museums of professions; police collections and the interplay between artefacts and documents.  Because I have learned to live with dyslexia and dyspraxia and childhood head injuries I am an excellent lateral thinker and imaginative problem solver – reflected in my highly visual style and emphasis on images and mapping.
