Storyville reinterpreted stories relating to Lincolnshire’s cultural heritage through the medium of paper using recycled books and maps provided by the libraries with contributions to the installations from locals through public art workshops. These site specific installations share a common theme of time and travel that related to Lincolnshire’s contribution within navigational innovation.

 

The Boston Library installation ‘The High Tide on the Coast of Lincolnshire, showcased a miniature origami paper landscape inspired by  Jean Ingelow’s poetry  and the Pilgrim Fathers. The ‘Clockwork Kirton’ installation showcases a paper clock inspired by  a dynasty of clock makers who were established in Kirton during the 18th century. The Donington Library installation, ‘Ode to Trim' showcased a mobile of papercut silhouettes inspired by the story of Flint the cat, faithful companion of Captain Flinders. the 19th century explorer from Donington who was the first to circumnavigate Australia.
