Tūhonohono means to bring together – to weave or join
I have been thinking a lot about using museum collections in different ways and about visualising those collections. I will be in Canberra for my internship at the Parliamentary Library next month and instead of just taking pictures of the new things and places I will see, I have decided follow in Virginia Gow’s footsteps and create connections between pictures I take with my phone to images and items from the Online Collections of Museum Victoria.
In essence this idea is inspired by
- Virginia Gow’s 2013 Tūhonohono project,
- The Sherrin’s 2012 ThreeSixFive project,
- Chris McDowall’s 2013 Colours of Tūhonohono and
- a game called Sembl which I have been playing for the last month.
I hope you all enjoy my little project.
Till next time!
