‘A Story of Transition in 10 Objects’ all gathered together in one place
As part of the promotion of ‘The Transition Companion‘, Emilio Mula made these 10 short films of different stories from the book. The recent BBC series ‘A History of the World in 100 Objects’ beautifully told the story of the evolution of human history illustrated by 100 objects chosen from the British Museum’s collection. We used a similar approach to tell the story of the emerging and unfolding Transition movement, which in its short life has spread to 35 countries around the world from its humble beginnings in Kinsale, Ireland. You can read more about these stories here, and here are the films…
No. 1. A stripey jumper.
No. 2. Bertie and Gertie.
No. 3. Part of an old gas lamp.
No. 4. An egg.
No. 5. Some mini-Draughtbusters.

No. 7. A Transition Streets workbook.
No. 8. A small pennant flag.
No. 9. A small bowl of topsoil.
No. 10. A bottle of ‘Sunshine Ale’.

Just watched them all and laughed and cried…also heard Grayson Perry in the middle of the night talking, (well, laughing and crying) about his current work in the British Museum which is really trying to get us all to detach ourselves from the promoted “reality” of the consumer economy for just one brief second and look instead at something valuable, lovely, given a meaning by daily use…and these two delightful offerings seemed to belong in the same world.

Thanks Michael! Funnily enough I went to see the Grayson Perry exhibition last week, and loved it… perhaps I’ll write something about it here some time. Thanks, glad you enjoyed them….
