Digital media and its use in museums


Rockefeller Library

How are museums using digital media? How should they? Join Seb Chan, Director of Digital and Emerging Media at the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, for a discussion of the ways that digital media are changing museums. An international leader in the field of digital media, Chan will describe his work at Australia's Powerhouse Museum and now at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, where digital media are generating new forms of public access and interactions with collections while the Museum is closed for renovations. Through a focus on digital media, Chan will guide participants through a consideration of public expectations of museums and the relationships between their physical spaces, their collections, and mediated experiences of visitors.

This workshop is part of the Public Humanities Professional Development Series.
