An Adventure Through Time & Space: Museum Objects In Motion

Do you think artefacts are boring? Think again. Every object tells a story. I present to you an Adventure Through Time & Space. A story about four objects from the Aga Khan Museum collection. An astrolabe, a manuscript (101 Nights) – not 1001 -, a lampstand, and a basil pot (Alfabeguer). An innovative approach combining music and motion design to renew artefacts from museum collections, showing their beauty, functionality, and stories.
