Open from 11 April 2014–4 January 2015, Longitude Punk’d at the Royal Observatory will celebrate the creations of wacky inventors, star-gazing scientists and extremely elegant explorers of the 18th century. Royal Museums Greenwich has commissioned eight UK steampunk artists to create works inspired by the technical inventions that were presented to the Board of Longitude between 1714 and 1828.
To coincide with Longitude Punk'd at the Royal Observatory and Ships, Clocks & Stars at the National Maritime Museum, Royal Museums Greenwich and Jurassic London will be publishing Irregularity, an anthology of original short fiction inspired by the 18th-century quest to impose humanity's order on nature's chaos.
