To enter the V&A’s Quilts: 1700-2010 is to step into a private, inner world created by hundreds of hands. In places this world is centuries old, in others contemporary, but it’s always haunting, complex and quirkily beautiful. My challenge as producer of the exhibition guide was to do it justice on a mobile, digital platform; Apple’s iPod touch.
In November 2012, the V&A opened the doors to its new Furniture Gallery, presenting the Museum’s outstanding collection of British and international furniture from the 15th century to the present day.
Nightjar was asked produce a series of audio tracks for use inside the gallery and on the V&A website. Interviewing fourteen furniture makers, conservators and curators, we explored questions of form, function, construction technique and decoration in the creation of furniture over six hundred years.

Miranda created this iPhone app when she was Producer at Discovery (now Antenna International). Packed with stories, photographs, video and interactive images that let you zoom in and out for a stitch-by-stitch view, Quilts was available in gallery and online, through the Apple Store.
