Dust from the Sahara blew into London last week. I managed to add a tiny amount to my Museum of Dust despite a sneezing fit, which added desert particles to the Kindbergian atmosphere. More about the collection here.
Today I added another item to my Museum … a tiny envelope of dust collected in 2019 which I found between the pages of one of my many notebooks. I was lucky enough to spend a day in the wondrous workshop of the House of Automata in 2019, where amongst other intriguing items, an automaton of the music hall performer Little Tich (famous for his Big Boot Dance) was being restored. A delicate operation was under way to replace his hair and add new eyelids. Here is another connection to Little Tich.
