This is me doing something like consulting at the UNITED NATIONS in New York. It was really exciting. They're thinking about making a new, global museum, and invited me along to discuss it. Wow.
I made a new thing at Good, Form & Spectacle with Tom, Frankie and other Tom. I'm really happy with it. It's called Two Way Street, and I've started to think of it as an exploded view of the British Museum collection.
It's a deliberate provocation, but not intended as anything other than celebratory. There's over two million things from all over the world in the museum, and it's wondrous and stunning. On the official web presence, it's also encased in an unsatisying search experience, hidden from highlights, and described by a dense (but ultimately useful) Conceptual Reference Model.
Along the theme of radical access, we've just cracked it open, and oh, what tales are tumbling out!
I've started collecting things I like on Pinterest.Follow george's board British Museum Exploring on Pinterest.
Just gave a talk in Paris. It was fun. Here's the write-up.
