Digital storytelling, the DS106 daily create, and content curation have led me to embark upon a project I’ll call Museum in a Box. Because I know I will not be able to do this daily or even weekly, I’ll try for a year of monthly museum displays in a box. Each month will have a theme and I’ll decide how to document each display as I go along. My box is a David’s Tea Sampler pack which has 12 small clear-lidded canisters, but the box could be anything – an egg carton, one of those weekly pill reminder cases, a subdivided tin, etc.
Natural History is this month’s theme, so we have the Museum of Natural History in a Box. Documentation of this museum is via a photograph on Flickr.
