A Meeting Point

Oskar Schortz and Marcus Comaschi

Barnstaple Library hosted an art installation that was designed using inspiration from some of the major transformational events that have taken place in Barnstaple.

‘A Meeting Point’, by Historian Oskar Schortz and inventor and technologist Marcus Comaschi presented a new interactive ‘tome stone’ developed through workshops with the North Devon local studies collection.

Meeting point

Inspired by Barnstaple’s historic tome stone – the place where people would hang notes of their paid debts– this unique and remarkable artwork saw interactive light emitting nails respond to visitor’s movements, pulsing and ascending, shedding a new light on this rare part of the town’s history.
