Mobile Icon Restoration Unit (MIRU)
Thursday 21 May 2009, by Icon Network
The Mobile Icon Restoration Unit is a fully functioning portable workshop that fits into seven cases. It is simple and sturdy so it can travel in a car to the icons. The workshop can be set up in any location with two well-lit rooms, two work tables and a 220V electrical outlet.
The aim is to maintain and conserve icon collections without neglecting basic scientific principles.
MIRU is available for loan to professional projects:
