Jason Wilsher-Mills: Jason & the Argonauts
Fantasic For Families
  • Jason Wilsher-Mills

An exhibition of colourful, life sized sculptures utilising augmented reality (AR) by artist Jason Wilsher-Mills.

Taking inspiration from his ancient Greek namesake, who sought out the bravest Greek heroes to travel with him on his epic journey, Wilsher-Mills found new heroes in the disabled communities he worked with in his journey around Britain.  This exhibition brings the unique stories of these heroes to life.

PHM will be home to Brave Boy Billy, The Corby Rocker and The Corby PIP Princess.  Visitors will be able to interact physically with the sculptures via iPad or smartphone; to unlock the animations, text, music and audio. These AR elements are accessed through free to download apps and tablets will be available at the museum.

Jason is a UK based disabled digital artist.  He uses digital media and 3D printing to create large artworks about his disability, childhood memories, popular culture and social history.  He has produced large scale pieces for the Houses of Parliament and Tate Exchange.  His long standing interest in the democratic process is reflected in his work.

As part of the museum’s summer activities, there will be Busy Bee explorer packs filled with challenges to take younger visitors around the museum and find Jason’s Argonauts.
