I led the creation of a digital archive of visitor response cards from the exhibition GENERATIONS: Connecting Across Time and Place, which took place at Somerset House from 8 June — 3 July 2019.

Before the exhibition opened, we collected quotes from interesting and inspiring people, asking them how they connected to other generations. These quotes inspired us to ask our visitors the same question and we were amazed by the hundreds of answers we received. These ranged from hilarious one-liners to heart-wrenching confessions.

After the exhibition ended, we decided to create an online archive to document every single response both as a Full Archive and in curated Themes. You can also read the Original Quotes, including contributions from poet and playwright Inua Ellams, founder of gal-dem Liv Little, and cellist Eru Matsumoto.
