From the heights to the depths: fresh approaches to engaging and immersing audiences using digital technologies

A session at NDF2013

  • Katie Kennedy

Wednesday 27th November, 2013

3:30pm to 3:55pm (NZMT)

Two recent Auckland Museum case studies have highlighted the use of digital experiences to engage and immerse our audiences with our collections and research in new and exciting ways.

  • From the Summit – Hillary’s Enduring Legacy: Focussing on the centre of the exhibition where a specially designed sculpture has been created to display the ascent Sir Edmund and Tenzing Norgay made up the Himalayas to the summit. Using layers of projected video, graphics and audio, audiences track, traverse and experience the path of the climb.
  • Moana – My Ocean: Immersing the audience in the drama of a Hauraki Gulf boil-up through the use of artificial intelligence.

As well as describing the process, development and outcomes of these digital experiences, we were also intending on sharing our ‘lessons learnt’.
