The past in the digital age

From whatever time it comes, the object is never silent or confined to a case in a gallery or museum; or in the case of a dress, worn by a dummy. Rather, through digital reframing and archiving and its multiple functionalities, the object can talk back to us; we as users can interact and make new associations (open new windows) acquiring and sharing new knowledge.

In this way the digital rethinking and configuration of fashion objects lent itself to a new cognitive process and map and a new organizations of visual and written content.

-Eugenia Paulicelli, from Mapping and Memory
