To celebrate the launch of the PK Online Collection (PKOC), a database containing the entire collection held at PK Porthcurno from the comfort of your own home. We have also had the opening of a new award winning exhibition titled PK150 Connected Collections. This new exhibition showcases the work created by our remote international students based on their own explorations into the collections at PK Porthcurno.
The students present their research through films, artwork, and an interactive map, exploring topics such as colonisation via the telegraph in New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Singapore and India, as well as the environmental impacts of telegraphy.
The project has allowed the collection to be viewed from new perspectives and the work created by the students provides a fascinating insight into the global impact of telegraphy.
