MoMA Unadulterated

MoMA Unadulterated | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it

Welcome to MoMA Unadulterated, an unofficial audio tour created by kids. Each piece of art is analyzed by experts aged 3-10, as they share their unique, unfiltered perspective on such things as composition, the art's deeper meaning, and why some stuff's so weird looking. This is Modern Art without the pretentiousness, the pomposity, or any other big "p" words.

Watch London burn in the Museum of London's incredible Great Fire 1666 Minecraft map | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
Some people just want to watch the world burn. Other people want to learn about history via the medium of Minecraft. If you're in the middle of this particular Venn diagram then might I point you to an astonishing creation by the Museum of London. Working with crafting masters, Blockworks, the museum has created three different Minecraft maps to tell the story of the Great Fire of London in 1666.

Putting the “VP” into MVP | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
The MVP. The Minimum Viable Product. It's a dream many designers hope to someday attain, yet it's a difficult one to achieve. This week, author Jerry Cao reminds us that MVP isn't just about keeping the product small, but also finding the best way to test the concept with an audience.

MoMA Presents PROJECT 104: NÁSTIO MOSQUITO, 9/23

MoMA Presents PROJECT 104: NÁSTIO MOSQUITO, 9/23 | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
The Museum of Modern Art presents Projects 104: Nastio Mosquito, the artist's first solo exhibition at a U.S. museum, from September 23 to October 30, 2016. Projects 104, part of the Elaine Dannheiser Projects series, features Mosquito's new work, Respectable Thief, which comprises three elements: a live performance in the Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters on September 23; a single-channel video installation on view on the Museum's third floor; and interventions into the digital display monitors in the Museum lobbies, the audio tour for kids, and the Museum's social media outlets. Initiated by MoMA in 1971 as a platform for new and experimental art, the Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series, now staged at both The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1, provides a forum for the most urgent international voices in contemporary art.

Another year or two - #AR vs. #VR: What today’s HoloLens, Vive and Rift tell us about our virtual future

Another year or two - #AR vs. #VR: What today’s HoloLens, Vive and Rift tell us about our virtual future | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
We recently got our paws on a pre-release Microsoft HoloLens​, by far the most advanced AR headset, and we have some thoughts on the pros and cons of its augmented worlds, how they size up next to VR and where this could all be heading.​

Gary Hayes's curator insight, August 18, 12:10 AM
Quote "Once you mentally get past its laughably tiny field of view, HoloLens can transform your office into a crime scene ripe for investigation, your living room into a 3D design lab or your bedroom into a home theater with a virtual 60-inch screen for Netflix or YouTube. And remember this is a developer device with scant available software. Give app-makers another year or two and the number of experiences will dwarf what we have today."
