Product details

Each movement has been composed from the inspiration of visits to four museums/collections respectively: The Melbourne Museum (Children's museum), The Cunningham Dax Collection, Science Works (The Planetarium) and The Holocaust Museum.

I wanted to capture the 'human' element of each collection. Buildings holding a collection of paintings, artefacts, facts, museums may be viewed from a variety of angles. I like to think of these places as a depiction/ portrayal of our humanity. I have chosen the title to represent an emotional and human aspect of each institution.
