Coming soon! The Frankenstein Portrait Project
Frankenstein’s Portrait - by Marty St James
‘Bolting’ together a new human being.. a living digital portrait on a global scale
Given the approaching bicentennial anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s book Frankenstein (1818- 2018) it is particularly fitting that we explore a new portrait of humanity on a global scale using digital big data and by interactive means.
I have started working on this, my new project at the University of Hertfordshire.
If you have any ideas or want to be involved please contact me.
