A Museum of Digital Life, Art and Other Things

Over the last couple of months I've been working with Kevin, Sarah and Todd and many more people on a project that we've dubbed the #NetNarr Alchemy Lab.

Kevin's idea: 'Let's do something transmedia' turned into an emergent project that was based on the amazing drawings by @EatcherVeggies. The intent was to move 2D drawings into a '3rd space' that could be experienced in a 'choose your own adventure' kind of way. What emerged through a global collaboration in a google doc and Twitter DM group was a spark, an Entry Ticket and virtual Lab shelves stacked with objects. Participants bravely chose artefacts, not knowing who their neighbour would be in the final Lab or how the narrative was developing until the final project was revealed this week.

What I appreciate the most about the finished project is that these artifacts rest beside each other and complement each other. The individual makers had no overall vision of the lab or who was next to them when they created their work. The variety of digital work translates local interpretation into this global museum. The journey was amazing and continues with the possibilities of remixes and reflections that appear on the padlet wall.

Techo note: For best results, use a PC or desktop. Most of the links will work on a mobile device but not extensively tested for that. The background will work wonderfully through VR goggles but not all the objects will behave. I hope you will find the custom built VR piece in the mix.
