The MediaLab

The MediaLab | Future of Museums | Scoop.it
The MediaLab explores the impact that technology can have on the museum experience, looking at the relationship between culture and technology through a variety of lenses.
ille's insight:
The MediaLab is a small team within the Creative Development Group in the Digital Media Department at MET. Our job, broadly speaking, is to explore the impact that technology can have on the museum experience. More specifically, we do this by working with New York's creative technology community, to develop prototypes and proofs-of-concept that we share with Met staff to get feedback and fuel conversation. We run an ambitious internship program, bring in volunteers, collaborate with local schools, and partner with startups that see a benefit in working with our amazing collection, incredible staff, and vast space. Our projects are low-budget, open-source, and rapidly iterated.

How the Rich Are Hurting the Museums They Fund - NYTimes.com

How the Rich Are Hurting the Museums They Fund - NYTimes.com | Future of Museums | Scoop.it
ille's insight:
For museum executives, the dirty secret of expansions has been that they are often motivated by the need to have some exciting new thing to rally board members and interest potential patrons. These institutions depend heavily on rich people to fund them. Those rich people like to pay for flashy new buildings; no one wants to donate to boring old museum upkeep. New institutions like the Broad, financed by the billionaire Eli and his wife, Edythe Broad, and other “ego-seums” illustrate that the people with the money are increasingly interested in founding their own institutions. 

A case for public funding ---> to improve the inequality.

ille's insight:
Art Camera by Google. When set up in front of an artwork, the camera photographs the piece, zooming in on the tiniest of details.
