The Kent Cultural Baton is a unique, original artwork designed by artist Nicole Mollett that will tour Kent in the period leading up to the London 2012 Games.
Inspired by the first Ordnance Survey map of Kent produced in 1801, the Kent Cultural Baton reveals worlds within a world, bringing to light the character and textures that identify a place and make it distinctive. It is a mobile creative workspace that at each visit captures the sights and sounds of its location – a visual and aural map, a snapshot in time.
The Baton’s journey around Kent will culminate in a body of material, a rich and layered resource that speaks reams of the different places, textures and narratives that comprise Kent. The most innovative and exciting discoveries will be brought together in a new interactive artwork – an alternative ‘Map of Kent’. This work, brought together by the Lead artist Nicole Mollett, will be multi-platform – existing as an archive, a published record, and a web-based interactive resource.
