Darren Banks re-interprets and makes sense of the history and life of
Samuel Morley (1809-1886) an English woolen manufacturer, philanthropist,
abolitionist and social reformer. By culling the Internet for contemporary and
historical material related to Morley, he intends to create a map of objects,
things, images, music and ideas that circulate around the man and his beliefs.
