  • Supporting artist Joshua Sofaer in the realisation of Phase 1 of the Rubbish Collection Project; sorting and documenting the rubbish over a 30 day period, alongside Science Museum staff and volunteers. Managing the archive, directing volunteers and assisting with collecting and moving the rubbish around the Museum and exhibition space. Coordinating with all elements of the museums including curatorial staff, porters, cleaners, and the artist himself.
