There is an opportunity to use the digital to deliver Tate’s mission to promote public understanding and enjoyment of British, modern and contemporary art. To achieve this, digital will need to become a dimension of everything that Tate does.
Nikolaos Maniatis's insight:
"The future of the museum may be rooted in the buildings they occupy but it will address audiences across the world – a place where people across the world will have a conversation. Those institutions which take up this notion fastest and furthest will be the ones which have the authority in the future … the growing challenge is to … encourage curatorial teams to work in the online world as much as they do in the galleries. (Sir Nicholas Serota, 2009)"
TAP is a collection of free and open-source tools which support the creation and delivery of mobile tours. The tools also serve as examples of producing and consuming tour content using the TourML specification. Currently TAP consists of authoring tools built on top of the content management system Drupal, a native iOS mobile application, and a web-based mobile application built upon the jQuery Mobile library.
When the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Australia opened its doors in 2011, it set out to reinvent the traditional museum experience. The private institution was in a unique position, able to integrate technology from the ground-up. The end result is what the MONA calls the ”O Tour”, which infuses digital content directly into its exhibits through a fleet of 1,300 iPods.
Manchester Museum has actively pursued a philosophy of making more of its collection available for visitors to handle and touch through object handling sessions and tactile displays. It is well known that this approach benefits all visitors, as the sense of touch connects the visitor to the object and its story. It can also enhance an intuitive and natural curiosity to learn more. As a conservator I know that some objects will not survive long term use as a handling object. Complex, beautiful objects often have the most captivating histories, but when displayed behind glass, they can be very difficult if not impossible for a visually impaired visitor to appreciat.
