A collaborative research programme?between curators and researchers at the Science Museum in London and the Palace Museum in Beijing, working with scholars at Beijing Jiaotong University and the Institute for the History of Natural Sciences (Chinese Academy of Sciences), around a unique collection of eighteenth-century clocks, manufactured and designed in England, but created for the Imperial court and held in China. A co-design approach?to the digital interpretation of the clocks involving knowledge exchange between UK and Chinese creative businesses. This is being supported by audience research into the display of the clocks in three locations: Beijing, Hong Kong and London, and is bringing together creative companies in both countries to explore new alliances and ways of working.
