Our mission is to contribute to a city where a rich cultural life enriches the experience of everyone living, working in & visiting Exeter.
How is a giraffe like a harpsichord? This question might remind you of the Mad Hatter’s riddle to Alice in her adventures in Wonderland. The hatter asks Alice, “Why is a raven like a writing desk?” When visiting RAMM, you will come across Gerald the Giraffe towering over a harpsichord. The harpsichord is a musical instrument that predated the piano. Is the question answerable? Paul will give an overview of modelling where we will explore how Gerald and the harpsichord are connected.
Modelling is an activity we loved as children, and is a defining aspect of being human. We will explore modelling to connect ideas and objects.
