A curator colleague interested in acquiring a soft, deformable seat
made from silicone has asked for advice on the longevity of the
material from a collections care perspective. If anyone has made a
conservation assessment for a silicone object, contributed to a
decision on whether to acquire one or is investigating the
preservation of this material, I would be very grateful to hear from
