Dan Sullivan, head of Growth & Partnerships at Cuseum, recently spoke at MIT Museum’s “Hacking the Museum,” which was part of the larger Cambridge Science Festival that took place from April 13-22. The event brought together leading minds from across industries to “talk about and demo museum APIs and collections databases with museum hackers” and to look at how technology like AR can be leveraged in the museum space.
Dan spoke on experiments in the augmented museum, which explored how augmented reality can both engage visitors and enhance the overall visitor experience. But more importantly, he highlighted how new technologies influence “not only how culture is displayed and consumed, but also how it is produced.” Dan highlighted Cuseum’s recent project with Pérez Art Museum Miami, an interactive AR fueled exhibition ”Invasive Species,” to illustrate how innovation and technology can fuel creativity and engage audiences.
We look forward to taking part in more of these vital conversations, as AR technology continues to play an integral role in driving the future of museums and cultural institutions.
