Collections: Pitt Rivers Museum

With collections as the basis of this project we traveled to the Pitt rivers in oxford. As oxford is my home town i had been to the museum multiple times but still i welcomed the opportunity, as there is no other museum like it as it has such rich collections of almost everything. And every time i go there i stumble on something new on this visit i was particularly interested is there collection of lamps from all over the world. and different eras.

It was an eye opener just to see how much variety there was coming in all shapes and sizes it also taught me a little bit of the history of lighting and how different cultures had made it work for them. Therefor showing just how crucial light is to every culture and how its been refined over time.
