A selection of projects authored with Scalar.
Created as a pilot project for the Claremont Center for Digital Humanities, “Performing Archive: Edward S. Curtis + ‘the vanishing race’” aggregates media from several different collections based on the early 20th century ethnographic and photographic work of Edward S. Curtis. In its gathering of materials from multiple sources, “Performing Archive” acts both as a meta-archive in its own right, and as an interpretive layer that examines Curtis’ materials through essays written by a variety of contributors. The project is designed to expand over time with additional contributions from students, faculty, and the public.
“Performing Archive” is the first project to make use of an experimental new reader interface for Scalar that’s designed to improve readability, navigation, and media presentation. New splash page and gallery views (see example above) allow more media to be featured in Scalar books, with greater visual impact.
