Novel Digital Installations for Visitor Interpretation in Museums and Cultural Heritage Sites: Challenges and Lessons LearnedSpeaker: Luigina Ciolfi – Cork, Ireland
Topic(s): Applied Computing
AbstractInteractive technology has long been applied to cultural heritage settings for the purpose of informing and engaging visitors. Findings from a number of studies suggest that, however, technology can sometime distance visitors from heritage holdings rather than enabling people to establish deeper connections with what they see. Furthermore, innovative interactive installations in museums and galleries are often seen as an interesting novelty but seldom lead to substantive change in how cultural and heritage institutions approach visitor interpretation and engagement. This lecture discusses key challenges in the application of digital technologies in such complex domain, and highlights lessons learned and recommendations drawn from several practical projects designing and evaluating digital installations in museums, galleries, and historic sites.
