Presentation Description

In this session, I will present ideas for modeling the collecting of information on the frameworks employed by museum curators when they collect artifacts. To illustrate the techniques, I’ll present a collection of information on Freud and neuroscience, and invite discussion on how pieces of information take on resonance in relationship to one another, much like a series of artifacts chosen by a curator for a themed exhibit become a whole greater than the individual pieces of art.
