Cultural Encyclopaedia

2015 – ongoing

The Cultural Encyclopaedia is a project by Ghanaian artist Nana Oforiatta-Ayim to facilitate the re/ordering of knowledge, narratives and representations from and about the African continent.

I was approached to help create the on-line version of this encyclopaedia, providing a simple system that would allow for the various pieces of information to grow and reveal the intertwined and non-linear narratives that are important to the understanding of Africa that Oforiatta-Ayim wishes to demonstrate.
