ingenious

autochrome from 1910.jpg

Ingenious is a new website from the NMSI – the consortium of UK museums that includes the Science Museum, National Museum of Photography, Film & TV, and the National Railway Museum. Its got an interesting mix of articles, images and debates that are structured on a kind of ‘ican’ style participation curve, from READ to DEBATE to SEE to CREATE.

There’s a lot of good stuff in there, particularly the photography collctions from the NMPFT, where the lovely autochrome of a young girl above comes from. Its from 1910, but looks strangely contemporary, almost like a faded kodachrome from the 1970’s.
