Oh, What does this button do?” Connecting Spaces, People, and Collections (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Oh, What does this button do?” Connecting Spaces, People, and Collections
Author: Jennifer Foley
Abstract: An invited lecture entitled "Oh, What does this button do?” Connecting Spaces, People, and Collections" for symposium: Digital Interpretation: Screens and Devices as Didactic Media Recent innovations in digital display and interaction at leading institutions, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Cooper-Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, and Cleveland Museum of Art, have made it clear that digital technologies are now firmly established as part of the museum-going experience. These developments necessitate a critical and thoughtful consideration of how to deploy screens and devices in museum environments in a way that best supports the objects on display and the narratives that curators are conveying. This symposium will juxtapose the work of leaders in museum technology with efforts being made in the Bard Graduate Center’s Focus Gallery Project to pose a variety of different approaches and models that engage with these new developments, and to open up discourse about the best ways to integrate digital technology in the interpretive and didactic missions of educational and cultural heritage institutions.
