The conference about digital strategies in heritage

2 - 3 December 2013
De Doelen, Rotterdam

Chris Wild

Keynote speaker - Retronaut founder

Retronaut is the laboratory where I experiment with archive pictures to uncover what makes them viral


Chris Wild is the founder and curator of Retronaut, a site that shows you the past like you wouldn't believe. Retronaut is filled with pictures that not so much of the past, as of an alternative version of "now". The site takes the collective map of time we all have in our heads and tears tiny holes in it. Retronaut's first book will be published in 2014 by National Geographic. Chris worked across the museum and archive sector for the best part of a decade. He is currently guest curator at Northumberland Museum and Archives.
