This exhibition was on display at the Polar Museum. It explored the pairing of an object from each of the University of Cambridge Museums and the Botanic Gardens with an object taken from the reserve collections at the Polar Museum. The Thing Is … used innovative touch screen technology to explore the relationships between each pair and invited the public to contribute to the curatorial process. The dialogue between the objects highlights the often surprising correspondences between things and audiences.
