Longitude Punk'dLongitude Punk'd celebrates the wacky inventors, star-gazing scientists and elegant explorers of the eighteenth century. The Royal Observatory in Greenwich has commissioned eight British steampunk artists to create works inspired by the technical inventions that were presented to the Board of Longitude between 1714 and 1828. The exhibition features both fantastical inventions and real historic objects - blurring the boundaries between art and science, fiction and fact. Longitude Punk'd includes specially created pieces by steampunk luminaries Robert Rankin, Herr Döktor, Dr Geof, Emily Ladybird, Major Thaddeus Tinker, Lady Elsie, Yomi Ayeni and Wyn Griffiths.

 

About Royal Observatory Greenwich
