Why the sto­ries be­hind ex­hibits need pre­serv­ing, too


As well as pre­sent­ing rare arte­facts, the NVM team is ea­ger to pre­serve the story be­hind the cre­ation of the ex­hibits, as well as their orig­i­nal con­text. “Hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced all of the gen­er­a­tions of gam­ing first-hand, we can sum­marise events and even pro­vide a unique com­par­i­son be­tween his­toric and cur­rent events,” San­tulli says. “We also have the unique abil­ity to share the rec­ol­lec­tions of hun­dreds of pro­gram­mers, de­vel­op­ers and even CEOs… Of­ten, th­ese sto­ries are linked to oth­ers, and over time we’ve heard some of the same ac­counts told from sep­a­rate par­tic­i­pants in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent way.”
