When the Brainchild goes on display, it will be accompanied by various printed media – documents, x-rays and photographs. These items provide a deeper history of the artefact than it is possible to know purely by viewing the head itself.

The photos also provide close up views of the artefact, which may otherwise be difficult to see when physically in it’s presence. All of these documents will have QR codes on the frames enabling digital download while at the exhibition

This is a shot of all the framed materials i have for display..

Also on show will be the Brainchild artefact itself, as well as two short videos, plus a digital timeline. Again, using all these other mediums allows me to flesh out the history of the artefact, as somebody viewing the exhibition can play detective – making connections and piecing together fragments of the story themselves.



stored data

i’m looking at how to connect a physical exhibition space with digitally stored information.

QR codes certainly seem like the simplest and most easily accessed method by which to do this. for instance, the code on the left links directly to this blog

so, i could easily have a separate page for each piece of stored data. the QRcode could be fixed next to the exhibit, enabling to digital version to be accessed while in the presence of the original.
