Analog and Digital: competing or boosting each other?

Analog and Digital: competing or boosting each other?

In recent years, there has been a trend showing young people shifting back to analog. Some claim it’s just about fashion, others see it as timely. One way or another, vintage clothing and analog cameras are being dusted off, and vinyl records are competing against CDs. It may well be about the pleasure of possessing physical objects. Try to hold a vinyl or a film camera in your hands. The way they are accurately designed, they’re not just meant to be used, it seems like they’re meant to be watched and appreciated. It could also be about the mechanic. The simple, understandable process of how a photograph is taken, of how the record player produces sound from a vinyl.

The British Museum claims to preserve a collection of around 8 million objects maintaining human history, culture and art ageing almost 2 million years. What they don’t claim is the right to treasure ownership. If it has not come to your attention yet, the museum stores world treasures previously taken under different circumstances from their rightful creators, owners and lands. The British Museum describes itself to be a “treasure trove” for objects that don’t even belong in Britain. Here is a quick tour on how the British Museum is anything but British:   Alongside all t
