Senga: A Participatory Archive Based on the Collection and Rearrangement of Images and the Sharing of Slideshows

"Senga – Silk Road" is a participatory archive that enables users to publish slideshows created by collecting and rearranging a number of images from the database. The collection and rearrangement of images is based on users’ own interest, and “tours” generated by users’ activity become navigational paths to browse the digital archive, and to be shared with other people. The goal of this research is to evolve the digital archive to show the trend and variety of culture through the accumulation of tours. This paper introduces the basic idea of “Senga,” and analyze created tours in terms of utilization status and questionnaires to users. It also shows that the variety of senses is produced from a simple system of just collecting and rearranging a set of images.
