Playing Exhibitions: Gaming On-line and In-gallery

Kathryn Saunders , Royal Ontario Museum, Canada

Session: The Virtual and the Real

Emerging Technologies and new expressive possibilities afforded by the Internet have enabled a new Museum experience: The Playing Exhibition. Kathryn Saunders and her team of researchers, exhibit designers, artists and animators are configuring exhibitions towards a new experiential authenticity. By configuring the exhibits as a game that can be played both in the gallery and on the web, visitors become the curators of their own experience.
