This was something i saw recently at Belsay Hall in Northumberland at the "Extraordinary Measures" exhibition, it had a profound effect on me, artistically as well as physically; I had a migraine.

The piece is called 'The Garden of Unearthly Delights' by Mat Collishaw. It is a commissioned piece juxtaposing contemporary images with historical references. He's refashioned a victorian spinning wheel or zeotrope using images of imps, butterflies and snails that's mesmerising as well as cruel.
