Museum of London - New walks, new commissions and cats in the collection

London 2012 was a major event for our city, which the museum set out to capture by collecting tweets about living or being in London during the Olympic Games. See the collected tweets interpreted by digital artist Hilde Krohn Huse in an installation at the Museum of London showing until 28 September.
