Senga: Analysis of participatory archives using the mathematical model of exhibition and its deployment in the museum

Senga is a participatory curation system based on the collection and arrangement of images. From the viewpoint of crowdsourcing, Senga draws multiple interpretations from people through context-sensitive annotation, and shares a curation-based virtual exhibition or "a tour." Senga has been a permanent exhibit at Toyo Bunko Museum since October 2011, and the usage of Senga by museum visitors has increased the number of tours to more than 2600. This paper analyzes collective context of tours for the level of images and tours, analyzes the mathematical model of exhibition using methods of complex network, and discusses the possibility of automatic generation of tours. The paper concludes with discussion about the potential impact of Senga around museums.
