Technology in museums turns visitors into curators and creators (Wired UK)

Technology in museums turns visitors into curators and creators (Wired UK) | Friends of the Museums (Singapore) | Scoop.it
Museums and galleries should be using new technologies and media to teach, engage and immerse visitors in the art they are viewing, says Local Projects founder Jake Barton.

Speaking at Wired 2012 about the future of cities, Barton explained how he was given the opportunity to help the Cleveland Museum of Art achieve this using touchscreens, live cameras and video, turning visitors into the curators of their own experience in the process.

Before Facebook, there was Manet, painting friends

Before Facebook, there was Manet, painting friends | Friends of the Museums (Singapore) | Scoop.it

"Long before smartphones turned so many of us into amateur photographers and revolutionised how we depict each other through social media, there were the works of French Impressionist Edouard Manet.

 

Manet's portraits and how they were influenced by photography are the focus of "Manet: Portraying Life" at the Toledo Museum of Art, the only U.S. museum to host the exhibition before it moves to The Royal Academy of Arts in London next winter."

Museums Teaching with Facebook | Edgital | Friends of the Museums (Singapore) | Scoop.it

"With over 500 million users, one in every 13 people on planet Earth is on Facebook. Museums, zoos, aquaria and other informal educational institutions have also jumped onto the Facebook bandwagon. Most use their page as a promotional tool – a kind of up-to-the-minute newsletter – informing their audience about events, programs and exhibitions. A few, but only a very few, use Facebook and other social media outlets as educational tools as well."

Digital storytelling: How to tell a story that stands out in the digital age? | The Museum of the Future

Digital storytelling: How to tell a story that stands out in the digital age? | The Museum of the Future | Friends of the Museums (Singapore) | Scoop.it

"To address the most important issue first: there is no such thing as digital storytelling. There’s only storytelling in the digital age, and frankly speaking this isn’t much different from storytelling in the age of hunters, gatherers, dinosaurs and ICQ. This doesn’t mean it cannot be challenging to tell a story people react upon online. On any given moment, hundreds of stories are unfolding around you, on Facebook, Twitter, and in niche social spaces. Many of them are much more interesting than anything a museum can possibly offer, at least, in the right here right now (because Justin Bieber might have really died this time, and you don’t want to be the last person to retweet that, do you?)."
