This project aims to develop an innovative interactive war archive using an intelligent database narrative framework. The framework will be experimentally applied to transform the display of the Australian War Memorial’s Afghanistan collection. It aims to demonstrate how users can interactively organise, explore and interconnect a digital material related to the experiences of defence force personnel. The project is expected to furnish the Australian War Memorial with a comprehensive legacy system for managing intelligent collections that can efficiently analyse, catalogue and deploy its Afghanistan material. It is also expected to reformulate commemoration as a dynamic dialogue between visitors and memorial archives.
