Contemporary works from RAF Fylingdales' artist in residence Dr Michael Mulvihill are presented with objects from the RAF Fylingdales archive.

The exhibition makes public for the first time objects from RAF Fylingdales Archive alongside new works by Dr Michael Mulvihill.

Dr Mulvihill has been the first artist in residence at RAF Fylingdales (2016-2019) as part of an AHRC Northern Bridge PhD between the School of Arts and Cultures and School of Geography, Politics and Sociology at Newcastle University.

The exhibition presents new research on the history of RAF Fylingdales in local, national and international contexts, highlighting North York Moors' integral role in international space monitoring and the cultural legacy of the iconic 'golf balls'.
