Nomad

At the end of the last year I launched my first project at Mnemoscene, a company I co-founded in 2017.  Nomad is a collaboration with Abira Hussein.

Nomad is a Heritage Lottery funded project which premiered at the British Library and British Museum during Somali Week Festival 2018. Based around workshops engaging Somali communities in London, Nomad explores the creative use of HoloLens Mixed Reality and web-based technology to contextualise archival Somali objects with the people and traditions to which they belong. To find out more about the project, please visit our website for the project here

Since October we have toured the experience, held workshops, and delivered presentations at the following events and venues:

Talks

Sussex Humanities Lab at Brighton Digital Festival
