The remnants of Professor Featherstone
works by jodi blokkeerus
Within this exhibition is a myriad of stories. Stories which may have laid dormant and undiscovered for many years. The story and origins of these strange creatures and the elusive Professor Featherstone, who mysteriously disappeared. Who was he and where did these creatures come from?
Professor Levi Edgar Featherstone was once a world renewed scientist, until in the mid 80’s when he gave a presentation at the World Fair in Tsukuba Japan; he believed would change our reality forever! Instead, he was meet with anguish and hostility. The world didn’t seem ready for his insights and discoveries.
Shunted from the scientific community; this once considered genius, was now regarded as mad and dangerous. He became a recluse, living far away from society, in the wilderness of Tasmania; supposedly alone, or at least that’s what the world believed.
Some 30 years later, there were some who had heard the rumours of this once great professors presentation, becoming curious as to what happened that day. The expedition was led by a young scholar named, Blue Jay Pebblewing, and after many months of searching, she discovered what was left of Professor Featherstone’s laboratory; all was seemingly abandoned with no sign of Professor Featherstone.
What she discovered lays before you within this room. The creatures from unknown origins and studies. Where did they come from and how did they come to be part of our world and what happened to Professor Featherstone?
