Digital artefact and Presentation are up!

As part of the assessment for my DH2001 Concepts and Collaboration module, I produced a digital artefact in the form of an interactive article and recorded myself making a presentation about digital libraries, museums and web archives.

Feel free to have a look through them – they’re to be found on separate pages near the top on the right-hand-side menu under About.

Here are the permanent links to the projects:

Exhibition on Screen

Recently, I went to see a screening at the Omniplex Cinema in Mahonpoint entitled Exhibition on Screen: The Curious World of Hieronymous Bosch. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect – I had never before heard of anyone called that, and, as far as I was concerned, Bosch was simply a washing-machine manufacturer.

He would often use surrealistic imagery to depict sin and hell, but also painted a number of depictions of Christ and the saints. His works are fascinating to look at due to his strange, phantasmical style.

Exhibition on Screen, a film production company, produce documentary-type films exhibiting works found in art galleries and museums – places which people would often love to visit, but simply do not have the time or resources (Exhibition on Screen, 2016). The Curious World of Hieronymous Bosch takes us on a tour of the Bosch collection in Het Noordbrabants Museum (Bosch’s hometown) in the southern Netherlands.
