John Harrison makes the big time! A cleverly curated exhibition at the National Maritime Museum has Harrison and his clocks centre stage – where they should be. Once again, the coming together of science and aesthetics takes your breath away when you see them, especially H1, his first, which made its watery debut on the River Humber just down the lane from here. The rest of the exhibition is good too: well thought out and innovative where it needs to be, as some of the concepts and the arguments need resenting carefully if they are to be conveyed meaningfully. Next day, off to Kew Gardens!
