Gallery 7, Episode 6 - Meeting Forty-Two
Neil Innes, one of the members of The Rutles, the third member of the surreal psychedelic jazz pop fusion combo the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band; consider by some as the seventh member of the Monty Python team; and according to Mitch Benn the 33rd member of the Beatles, donates to The Museum of Curiosity the Institute of Cognitive, which would cover things like drunk-driving, mutually assured destruction and building houses on floodplains.
Dr. Bradley Garrett, a writer, photographer, urban explorer and researcher at Oxford University, and probably the only academic who has been seen hanging onto a crane at the top of the Shard, being arrested on the tarmac at Heathrow for criminal damage, hung a 50ft long scarf around the Angel of the North, and trespassing on private property over 300 times in more than eight countries, gives the hidden rivers of London, like the Fleet, the Tyburn, the Westbourne, and many modern sewers.
Dr. Isabel Behncke Izquierdo, a scientist who grew up in the wild mountains of Chile, doctor of cognitive and evolutionary anthropology, and who has studied neuroscience, music, primatology, poetry, ethnology, complexity theory, behavioural ecology and hobbits offers a laughing tree. This a tree with bonobo apes that were seemingly laughing. To Isabel, it was if the tree itself were laughing.
