The Borough Road Collection Archive is a platform for developing collective approaches, experimentation, creative annotation and unexpected encounters with an online collection. The selection of digital objects includes images of Modern British artworks from A David Bomberg Legacy - The Sarah Rose Collection, archival material from London South Bank University, as well as contemporary artworks that respond to the collection, documentation and event records.
The platform runs on MediaWiki, free and open-source software for digital archiving. Creating a wiki is a choice that allows collective contributions and editing so that the collection can grow with input from multiple registered users. Collaborators are invited to reflect collectively as online curators, fortune tellers and audio guides of the online collection. Collaborators can interpret the online artwork in response to embodied looking questions and speculative fiction prompts. We will consider where these digital objects might travel or be seen in the future.
The platform was designed by curator/researcher Theresa Kneppers and media artist Artemis Gryllaki with support from technical tutor/researcher
Tim Fransen as part of a research project with the Centre for the Study of the Networked Image ( https://www.centreforthestudyof.net/) at London South Bank University. User interactions may be used as part of the PhD research project being undertaken by Theresa Kneppers. Permission will be sought from users before any material gained from the gamed intervention is included in final reports or publications.
