The project is structured as a subjective analysis over the “state of the art” of digital applications in museums and exhibition. First, it will investigate the concept of adding value, though digital supports, to traditional observations of artworks. In a second stage, it will explore, via a critical analysis, the notion of virtual projections as museological experiences with outstanding intrinsic value. The current role of museums as static educational entities will be disputed, providing an alternative view as well as hypothetical evolutions for the future. Finally, a special focus will be granted to the concept of displaying original objects rather than showing digital reproductions, presenting a real-‐life case that challenges the traditional dominance of original versions over copies.
The thesis of Dr. E. Gurian: “Power to visitors”. What do we mean with “digital supports”?
