Folks, it turns out to be archive month. Let’s celebrate! Light is projected through images of Florence Nightingale, trees undergoing surgery, baby animals in zoos when zoos were just a bunch of barren cages, native peoples of Borneo, the period rooms of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Hercules company (specializing in explosives!) Along with old-fashioned imagery, what becomes illuminated is subcultures of humans who appreciate such displays. An ode to the natural world and its appreciators - particularly the author of the miraculously rectified childhood diary of a girl named Opal - is sung.
