We have always been storytellers
Our tools determine how we express ourselves
Let me introduce the word “hypertext” to mean a body of written or pictorial material interconnected in such a complex way that it could not conveniently be presented or represented on paper.
A file system for the complex, the changing and the indeterminate (1965)
Films, sound recordings, and video recordings are also linear strings, basically for mechanical reasons. But these, too, can now be arranged as non-linear systems—for editing purposes, or for display with different emphasis. [...] The hyperfilm—a browsable or vari-sequenced movie—is only one of the possible hypermedia that require our attention.
Human Computation in Online Video Storytelling
that can only be told on the web
Film making is like sculpture
Web making is more like Lego
makes art accessible beyond the gallery
enables 'easy' reproductions
let's you download & remix open access content
has an API
let's visitor personalise their experience
provides SNG with data about visitors' interest
makes artworks shareable
is forkable on GitHub
that's all great
how to make it more than a digital version of this?
It’s not about creating different exhibits and programs, it’s about creating different visitor experiences.

Museums are experience factories
[they] have the power to make us respond, to engage, to experience, to feel.

The best way to descibe design is that it seeks to connect things by acting as a bridge between them
Design seeks to negotiate the qualities of the content with the affordances for the format to produce a cohesive whole greater than the sum of the parts
Frank Chimero - The Shape of Design
You can think about the invention of powerful representations as being one of the big drivers of the past 2000 years of the intellectual progress of humanity ...
... because each representation allows us to think thoughts that we couldn’t think before, we kind of continuously expand our thinkable territory
