About us

Welcome to our resources for people creating, using and caring for replicas:

Replicas and originals often sit between places, collections and sectors, and are subject to inconsistent, different and divergent practices, which may include inertia and invisibility. We seek to change this.

So, this is the place for joined-up thinking about and working with replicas, particularly analogue replicas, informed by current ideas about authenticity, value and significance.
