Are you curious about digital collections? Wondered why museums should digitise their works and how to use them? Join us for a conversation between the Head of Collections at MAP, Shibu Narayan and Digital Artist in Residence, Adira Thekkuveettil; where they explore how Cumulus was created as a digital archive and active repository of art in the Museum’s exhibitions, and how Thekkuveettil created her digital project Nimbus, in response to Cumulus.
Cumulus is a free and accessible online resource with over 18,000 objects in MAP’s collection, while Nimbus is a digital project created as a series of reflections using ideas of “suggestions” and “edits” as tools of engagement with the MAP collection.
This programme is organised as part of a joint digital residency with the Horniman Museum and Gardens (UK), produced by Zelda Cheatle. As MAP’s digital Artist in Residence, Adira Thekkuveettil was selected to respond and work with Cumulus. Learn more about the residency here.
