This piece was created for the Brighton Digital Festival after receiving their community grant. It is titled Healing Through Archives: Coming Home. This was an exploration of the digitisation of objects, sounds and landscapes.
Could digital replicas enable you to visualise the past, could Virtual Reality take you home?
This was an experiment, an attempt to create an immersive archive using Somali objects from the British Museum’s Object Journeys project, oral histories from the Elderly Islington Somali group and panoramas from Laas Geel. This piece was tested with the support of Sussex Humanities Lab.
Funders: Brighton Digital Festival, and Imperial College London
3D work was carried out by Thomas Flynn, photogrammtery by Mustafa Saeed and stitching, sound, annotations by Abira Hussein.
