Bimblebox: art – science – nature, closes in Miles and off to Western Australia

Crates ready to be labelled and packed

Crates at Dogwood Crossing, Miles, ready to be labelled and packed

Over the past two days Bimblebox: art – science – nature has been getting ready to travel to Western Australia.  The crates are amazing pieces of engineered packaging.  Lightweight and ingenious, made out of cardboard.  A very special thank you to Donna Davis who in her role with Museum and Gallery Services Qld, is managing the tour of this exhibition.  Donna now knows these crates inside out and it was inspirational and educational working with her throughout Monday.  Here are some pics:
