We have taken the mummy, Takabuti as the starting point and using video and QR codes will be able to link to an image of a “ghost” telling their story.
The aim of this is to help people engage with the objects in a different way, to realize that they were real people who had their own story, or that the objects belonged to real people. The project would be relatively simple to put together, the main work would be researching and scripting the “ghosts”.
Each “ghost” will have a QR code which can be read by an app linking it to the video of the ghost
Recently, the meme scene has exploded on to Facebook, with the typical themes involving cities, towns and schools.
We decided to bring this to the Ulster museum, to bring a bit of creative Internet culture to contrast with the traditional atmosphere of the place.
