The Case Collection

mussite11.jpg
Always on the look out for interesting digital manifestations of museums and collections. This project was created by one of my NYU colleagues, Tal Halpern, who is a writer, artist, and IT specialist:
Digital Nature: the Case Collection version 2.0 is a net-based story-space that transforms an on-line library catalogue into an experimental narrative environment. The project consists of a database of digital objects(narrative objects) from a fictional 1910 natural history expedition and software package that allows users to search, sequence, view, comment, and make connections between objects according to a set of rules in real-time. In short, this project can be thought of as a real-time anthropological artifact generator and narrative engine, which exploits the popular forms of information culture—the on-line library interface and non-hierarchical database- for their context generating potential.
