Extend: Open Culture and Rijsk Museum

Screenshot showing art collections created by Irene Stewart

For the daily extend, part of Ontario Extend, we were to explore Open Culture, a website featuring collections and media that are shared freely on the internet. I was fascinated by Rijsk Museum in the Netherlands. Rijsk Museum digitized over 125,000 masterpieces of Dutch artists and you can explore and create your own collections. You can also remix these into a variety of projects use the whole work or just a small piece.  I created a couple of collections of pieces that resonated with me. I found this to be a new way to connect to my dutch heritage as well as a new way to interact with art.
