The Apocalypse Tapestry is a large medieval set of tapestries commissioned by Louis I, the Duke of Anjou, and woven in Paris between 1377 and 1382. Over six tapestries that originally totaled 90 scenes, it depicts the story of the Apocalypse from the Book of Revelation by Saint John the Divine. In this exhibition, first-year Core Time & Technology students have each chosen a panel of their choice from the tapestry and reinterpreted it as a vinyl and augmented reality installation. Students were invited to consider their own experiences of apocalypse (especially in the last year and a half) in their translation of the medieval tapestry.
