Have you heard the "cry of tin"? Do you know what other beautiful sound it can make? What is "tin pest"? Andrea Sella, chemist, answers these questions in this film, which is part of our Elements series. He is curating an Elements event with Hugh Aldersey-Williams on Friday 22 June 2012 that will look at gold, silver and bronze (tin and copper). This special late night event will have activities, talks, performance and live experiments happening all over the building.
