WHAT IS THAT?

 

A “museum” is a place for “muses”.

A “muse” is something that inspires us to personal expression, to create something special. A muse may be a living person or someone from history or fiction; a muse may even be an object, an heirloom, art work, fossil, flower, etc..

 

Me, I make photos as one way of observing and appreciating people -- sometimes in the context of an organization, e.g. a school, a ship, a building site. A good photo can be a muse for me, provoking insights, new questions, more efforts, and pleasure.

 

Thanks to the Web we have many VIRTUAL MUSEUMS, mostly dedicated to a single organization whereas ORGmuze is about the generality. Unlike traditional (walk-in) museums, these websites can easily be changed, even daily. They can be windows into work-in-progress, as well as a show-case for finished (?) products and publications. 

 

TWO APPROACHES TO INQUIRY

 

Aiming to throw a bit more light on organizations, how they work, the price we pay, how they might work better, THIS VIRTUAL MUSEUM will present two kinds of material -- all work in progress.

 

1) CASE STUDIES, analysis, and theory -- such as social scientists and investigative journalists usually produce.

 

2) UNTRADITIONAL EXPLORATORY approaches, especially my experiments with photography -- not so much conclusions but questions, possibly provocative ones.
