M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

Literary synopsis “In *The Sundering Flood* the first meeting between the hero and heroine occurs when Osberne, on the eastern bank of the river, sees Elfhild emerge from a cave in the cliff-side on the river's western bank. The two children make their way to the Bight of the Cloven Knoll; the point at which 'The Sundering Flood' is narrowest, and begin to question one another. Morris's hero and heroine continue to meet at the Bight of the Cloven Knoll through both summer and winter for five years. As they approach adulthood, their enforced separation becomes daily more irksome to them but they can see no prospect of physically meeting.” - Helen A. Timo William Morris was writing *The Sundering Flood* in 1896 as his health was steadily failing. He became so ill that he had to dictate the final words of the work to Sydney Cockerell on September 8, 1896. [Download book](http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/25547).
