Hello. I was in at ACMI X Mon-Wed and completed 11 stories. I found going back and re-writing the T2 stories more straight forward (under an hour, 45 mins). The T1 stories were harder, taking up to 2 hours each to write. I think this is because it doesn't create for good writing (and poor academia!) if I write on a topic that you don't fully understand. And so I'm finding that I spend some time reading Elle's report, then going to the links and reading about it myself, choosing an angle, drastically editing Elle's work, finding 5 sources that match my writing and then reading it back and making changes. I hope this is useful feedback. For Larissa and I it's working a treat (the T2) and I don't want to change the process there. But the style and content difference from the T1 means that I'm perhaps only taking 20% of Elle's writing after research into my final piece. For this reason I met with Elle do discuss ways in which we can speed up our production. We're going to try with a few different ways until we find a streamlined method that still gets the desired outcome. But interesting content and fun stuff, great office btw (can I get on the emailing list for events please?) but just keen to find a way that will allow us to write more.
The web application ACMI Soft Power Map is a focused single-museum online tool to geo-visualise and assess the ACMI’s “attraction power” in Melbourne and abroad. It maps the ACMI’s collection appeal power, digital engagements and international connections in different countries around the world. This tool offers multilayered exploration of ACMI cultural resources and social outputs to reveal social-demographic, cultural and economic factors that affect its capacity to attract larger visitation and revenue.
Layer 1: Collection Appeal Power Index
This research task involves measuring, mapping and exploring museum audiences, both online and onsite and aims to track the development of the institutional brand recognition in different parts of the world. Drawing on the museum visitation records and social media statistics, the GIS will employ visitation data to indicate quantities and geographic distribution of online and on site audiences at home and abroad.
This research task involves exploration of ACMI international networks of partners, collaborators and contacts which facilitate cross-cultural projects, curatorial and artistic exchanges and many other activities that transcend cultural and geographical boundaries. ACMI has an extensive network of partners throughout the world residing in different continents, from Americas to Asia Pacific.
