Playdough Pie Chart of British Industry
October 2015
Event, Workshop

For the opening of Rabbits Road Institute we curated an afternoon of activity including individual and group portrait painting by artist Lady Lucy, Library Memories with researcher Alice Corble and the collective making of a 3D pie chart of British Industry out of homemade playdough. Each industry segment was represented by miniature models interpreting the seven areas on the chart: Construction, Manufacturing, Agriculture, Energy, Hospitality and Retail, Transport and Communications, and Finance and Business Services (the largest piece of the Pie). Over the course of the afternoon, the chart filled up with tiny models of diggers, mobile phones, cars and cakes.
