We're excited to announce that our Media Conservation Initiative will be kicking off this May! The initiative seeks to advance new strategies in the field of time-based media #art preservation and restoration, and to rethink the role of the #conservator in the #museum setting as well as the knowledge and skills future media conservators should possess. A series of #mediaconservation workshops and peer forums will address these serious challenges, explore best practices, and identify long-term approaches to the care and collection of time-based artworks.
...
The first workshop, titled "Getting Started: A Shared Responsibility. Caring for Time-Based Media Artworks in Collections," will take place May 2-5, 2017, at MoMA. For more information on how to apply, visit mo.ma/mediaconservation1
...
Application deadline is February 1, 2017. This Initiative is made possible by @mellonfdn

Hi Everyone! So sorry for being so absent lately. Some big news: I have been accepted into graduate school for art conservation! This is HUGE. Over the course of the last 6 years I have applied 4 times and interviewed 3 times. It is extremely competitive to get into these programs and it is an absolute dream come true! I will be starting at the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation in July. I can't wait to learn all about the science behind materials and research the best way to preserve our art for future generations!! Unfortunately, this means a break from Pawblo and custom orders since I will be working full time as a fellow in the program. I'll put you on a list if you're open to waiting some time for a portrait. I can't wait to share with you some of what I'm learning in school, and combine my passion in art conservation and art making. Trust me... this won't be the last you see of me! ❤️ (in this photo I am conserving an Allen Tupper True mural from 1930 at the Western Center for the Conservation of Fine Arts in Denver, CO).

DUC delivered the fall 2017 Conservator magazine to our supporters’ mailboxes in October. Have you seen it? We'd love to hear what you think!

We have a diverse range of collections in Colchester, from #AnimalSkins to #Archaeology. All of the objects need to
be cared for, which is the job of our #conservator. We also have new objects coming into the museum on a regular basis,
some of which have been only recently uncovered through excavation or fieldwork. These objects need to be cleaned before
they can enter our stores or go on display. One recent example of conservation @colchestermuseums is the incredible
#Harpy found at #Brightlingsea, near #Colchester. It's an incredibly striking object that would have been at the foot of a
piece of furniture almost 2000 years ago.

This rather unusual specimen is of a baby’s arm and hand holding female genitals and is called ‘Hand Mit Vulva’. It was prepared by Dutch Anatomist Frederik Ruysch (March 28, 1638 – February 22, 1731) who I consider to be ‘Da Boss’ when it comes to anatomical specimen preparation. Although this looks very odd to modern, Western eyes, Ruysch was part of the enlightenment culture that prevailed at the time, when there wasn’t quite so much of a distinction between science and art. He blurred the boundary between the demonstrative element of scientific preservation and the allegorical, symbolic nature of Vanitas art. I can only assume that this specimen perhaps in some way represents ‘life’ with the baby holding that part of the female which gives birth and therefore gives life. Many of his specimens, now around 300 years old, still survive at the Kunstkamera museum in St Petersburg and you can see the catalogue online (http://goo.gl/8M2FTj ). And as an added aside, many of his baby specimens were dressed - like this arm - and it was his daughter who created the garments.

In the past couple of weeks, an old medical book from 1766, Nova Nosographia Ophtalmica, written by Dr. Johannis Taylor (1703 - 1772) has been under my conservatorhands here at @medicalmuseion #medmus The book contains colored tablets with the eye affected by a number of diseases. These are described in 243 diagnoses divided into 27 chapters.
It has been a slow conservation- and stabilization process with cleaning the book and subsequent stabilization of pages and covers.
The most exciting in the process has been, that I have been able to follow the various eye diseases closely, while thinking about the story of Dr. Johannis Taylor works as an eye surgeon.
Johannis Taylor was an early British eye surgeon, most famous for being a medical Charlatan with flair for self-promotion and amazing oratory skills that brought him wide around in the high society of 18th century Europe. The great popularity and recognition he achieved also led to Taylor becoming the self-proclaimed personal surgeon to King Georg II, the Pope and a number of European royal families and famous people, of which Taylor named himself "Chevalier" or "Royal Optical Maternity":
Taylor performed violent painful eye surgery. He was a coucher or a cataract surgeon who performed the removal of cataracts by breaking them into pieces, which was not a succes even though he claimed it. He conceived to blind a hundred of patients, including allegedly the well-known composers Bach and Händel, who allegedly also received violent infection complications after the surgery. Taylor also claimed to be the cause of the Bach's death, which died of complications due to Taylors surgery. It should be mentioned that the doctors of these times do not have a concept of bacteria or anesthetic knowledge.
So when you here in the sweet Christmas times hear the hallelujah choir from the Bachs and Händel's works here, you can look forward to the fact that the standards of medicine and, in this case, ophthalmology have improved significantly since 18 th century. #medicalhistory #ophalmology #eyesurgery #cataract #conservator #conservation #collection #oldbook #johannistaylor #chevalier #blind #eyes #bach #händel #composer

Seemed sensible to me? How do you guys prepare tokens and samples for patination or corrosion?
Repost @thomasvkampen ・・・
Things one finds in the house of a metals conservator @flevey :
A corrosion token in a pot of Aloe Vera.
Apparently in preparation for the testing of patination potions, designed by @fordhallam63. (For those wondering: it is in with the aloe in the bathroom because outside was too dry.)

Ko Matiti te Maunga

Ko Maraetaha te Awa

Ko Horouta te waka

Ko Ngai Tāmanuhiri te Iwi

Ko Te Muriwai te marae

Matiti is the mountain, Maraetaha the river, Horouta is the canoe, Ngai Tamanuhiri the people and Te Muriwai the marae.

Throughout life, I have been at various occasions where an orator or speaker will introduce themselves with reference to the landmarks and place of their people. Growing up, we learnt this protocol through everyday life experience, where culture, values and teachings were and still are, one in the same.
Often the first thing asked is, 'where are you from?', as a way of making connection and understanding of whakapapa (geneology). We make reference to these places of significance to explain our place of belonging and close connection to the land and surroundings. 🔸️
So, no matter how far I travel, I know where my place of belonging is.

What's behind the door of this advent calendar? ⬅🎄 As an ex Mortuary Technician I still find it humbling to work on the more 'recognisable' body parts in my pots. It's odd to hold a finger in your fingers, especially when it's from 1882 like this one. It's an avulsion (it's been ripped out) because of a ramrod ejecting from the barrel of a gun

I prepared this gorgeous painting by Otto Dix about a year ago for travel and display at a borrowing institution in Germany. Stabilizing treatments and aesthetic compensation may be required for the artwork to safely travel in its custom-made crate. Sometimes a conservator will determine that a certain artwork is unsuitable to travel due to its physical condition. A conservator’s veto, however, may be out-weight by politics, the number of favors a curator owes another curator, or the arbitrariness of a museum’s director.

FRIYAY// After the week that has been, I have learnt to realise my capabilities and accept that it is ok to get things wrong once in a while. I have always been fiercely independent and set very high expectations of myself, pushing myself to achieve. Along the way however, I seemed to lose touch with my own humanity, so when things came a teary heap this week, I felt like a failure. Sometimes I forget, I am not superwoman (although I feel like it on a daily) and the world still goes around regardless. Big learning curve - stop being so hard on myself!! Break down the big picture, set daily goals, keep it simple, keep it specific but be ruthless in my execution👊👊👊👊👊👊👊👊 #goalsmashing #smashingoals #fireinmybelly #refocus #regroup #backontrack #weeklywins #conservator #conservators #restoration #restoringself #tiakiobjectsconservation #culturalconservation #entrepreneur

Spent the morning in court #conservator #countyoffresno

Archipelagus Orientalis (1663) by master #cartographer Joan Blaeu was rediscovered in 2010 and acquired by the National Library of Australia in 2013. In June’s #Autralia workingtrip I was lucky to see it in Grimwade’s conservation lab at PROV #melbourne at its mounting stage...! It was a rare occasion of the #paper #conservator and the #textile conservator working together. Can you see the tenting of the map? The toned in-fills and repairs? The rubber tube support was also coloured black for better integration. What I love the most is the recessed area of the huge frame accommodating its original wooden map frame which removes the stress on the map itself when hung, and the backing support is very lightweight...! The textile conservator worked at attaching a lining strip for support along the edges to keep the map flat on the frame support.

Flashback. Il y a exactement 6 années, je terminais un chantier de restauration extraordinaire. Une amie et moi avons eu la chance de restaurer les décors du théâtre de la Reine, à Trianon, Versailles. Ce même endroit et ces décors qui ont côtoyé Marie-Antoinette (ou Sofia Coppola et Kirsten Dunst 🙊). Ce lieu merveilleux, nous a appartenu pendant 3 mois, juste à nous deux. Si vous n’y êtes jamais allés, je vous conseille de visiter le domaine de Marie-Antoinette, il vaut mille fois le détour (rien à voir avec le château). C’est un petit endroit vraiment magique et émouvant 🌸✨

*SWIPE* After and before! Here are a couple of pictures of the helmet I have been working on now it is finished. See my previous posts for some of the processes used to conserve this lovely Indo-Persian helmet. Big thank you to the private owner for allowing me to share these images and to all the wonderful conservators who generously gave me their advice.

BEHIND THE BENCH//One of the things I really enjoy about running my own practice is spending time making stuff (when I have time😂). In previous jobs, I have worked in well-supplied labs, where simple equipment such as dacron cushions, have come ready-made. Something as simple as this, is so integral to performing many repairs or to support restoration work. Thankfully, I love to sew, otherwise I wouldn't get so excited whenever I need to make more!! #conservationcraft #storagegeek #conservationsupport #conservator #conservators #tiakiobjectsconservation #supportcushion #dacron #polyesterwadding #unbleachedcalico #mysewingmachine #newequipment

I read about the French artist Mathias Kiss in the Eurostar magazine this evening. Mathias caught my eye when he was described as an artist with previous lives as a monuments restorer and Thai boxer. He trained as a construction painter aged 14 after a very difficult childhood, and then started working at the Louvre, restoring vast salons full of gold leaf, whilst moonlighting as a pro boxer. After more than a decade of restoration work, he took all he had learned and became an artist in his own right -- and I love this work, which clearly reflects so much of his own experiences! #art #conservator #conservation #france #mathiaskiss

How did that happen? How are we only 21 sleep away from Xmas? Eeeek! Xmas is my favourite time of year because it means family, food and fun. When my grandparents were still alive, our family celebration revolved around them, often at our house as my father is the oldest. My mum comes from a HUGE family, so we would often meet them at the beach and enjoy time with them after Xmas day. I have many fond memories of everyone getting involved with the lunch preparation, often consisting of turkey, ham, chicken, lamb plus all of the trimmings - sometimes, we would have a hangi, followed by the most amazing desserts. This was a time of adventure and mischief with the cuzzies, while the adults caught up over a wine or two, into the night. Times like these are a little less these days, only because we live in Australia and our family is in New Zealand, BUT we make the effort to recreate the memories and feeling of togetherness as much as possible for our young ones.🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄 #XmasTime #letthefestivitiesbegin #ilovexmas #xmastimefamilytime #mostwonderfultimeoftheyear #makingmemories #justliketheolddays #21sleepstillchristmas #tiakiobjectsconservation #objectsconservation #preservingmemories #xmas2017 #workfromanywhere #worktolive #conservation #conservator #conservators

When something gets ripped off the body - or ripped *out* - it's 'avulsed'. This is the scalp avulsion of a 14 year old girl, although the hair looks grey so you may have thought she was older (it's just been bleached by the sun and darkened by dust since it was preserved in 1933.) She worked in a box making factory and one day while scrubbing the floor of the workroom her ponytail got caught in the revolving shaft of the machinery. It literally lifted her and spun her round and round until eventually her scalp ripped off and she fell to the floor. She was taken to hospital and the clinical notes say "her scalp arrived half an hour later but was too dirty to be sutured on." On admission she was found to be in a "state of profound shock" (you don't say...!) and her skin was gone from just above her eyebrows right across her head. It took 5 years of grafts before she was able to wear a wig. Poor girl.
