TROYA, María Fernanda. From not born digital objects to technical digitised objects: about LaGLOBAL Virtual Cabinet. Índex [online]. 2022, n.14, pp.11-23. ISSN 2477-9199.

The Virtual Cabinet from LaGLOBAL research network is a Public History project about objects from the Colonial and Early Republican periods in the Americas. In this text we take the cabinet not only as a collection of objects that show the “place of the Americas in the global history of knowledge” (, but also as a collection of digital objects. This will allow us to present some preliminary reflections on digital objects as technical objects, and for that we question their mode of existence through the ontological debate proposed by Simondon, Latour and Hui.

Keywords : Cabinet; Technical Object; Materiality; Digital Object; Ontology; Knowledge.
