the museum conference as memento mori

museum #computer-feelings network 2019

I attended the Museum Computer Network conference in San Diego last week. These are some of the drawings I made while I was there.

Day 1

Day 2

Day 3


This is obviously not a drawing but the photo of the room service tray was taken at the MCN conference hotel. The photo of Little Baby Bird-Crushing Jesus was, coincindentally, taken at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum just before this year's Museums and the Web conference in Boston. The screenshot above, courtesy of my phone, largely encapsulates how I feel about the tenor and the substance of the discussion surrounding artificial intelligence, machine-learning and the cultural heritage sector in 2019.
