samuel bausson's curator insight, April 25, 2013 11:40 AM

Did having these touchable models deepen participants’ engagement with the artwork ? Did people walk away feeling like they’d had a satisfying tactile experience with this sculpture ?


Visitors (...) paid careful, detailed attention to the surface of the sculpture and all of its contours. They held up the 3D models and compared them to the original sculpture in front of them.


(...) but the stone and scarves seemed to spark a wider variety of conversation and brought people’s focus back to the sculpture more quickly.


The 3D prints are new tools for us to play with, and we need to work with them more to get more comfortable. What are the best kinds of questions to ask people when we put these into their hands?

Tate Digital Strategy 2013–15: Digital as a Dimension of Everything | Tate

Tate Digital Strategy 2013–15: Digital as a Dimension of Everything | Tate | Museums & Emerging Technologies | Scoop.it
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)"

Museum of Old and New Art Rethinks the Museum Experience | Canadian Heritage Information Network | Museums & Emerging Technologies | Scoop.it

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.

Haptic interactive technology brings visitors closer to museum collections

Haptic interactive technology brings visitors closer to museum collections | Museums & Emerging Technologies | Scoop.it

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.
