Tom Cartmill : All Of a Twist

The Turbine House

To overlap with National Heritage Open Days and the new Reading-on-Thames Festival. Inspired by the turbines themselves and advised by around a dozen Reading-based scientists, the exhibition will take a light-hearted look at twisty-turny stuff in, on, above and beside Reading's rivers. The exhibits' areas range from twisting for strength (wool, rope...), twisting in nature from DNA, spirogyra, willow and natural twists, the river flow itself, Reading as Tornado Alley, red kites soaring, rowing & paddling and of course the river as a source of power from the Abbey watermill to turbines past, present and future.
