  • 1. “Video’s Relationship to Museums in Digital Culture”MCNPro Workshop 1 | Creating a Video Channel for Your MuseumDecember 11, 2012 | 11:30 am- 2:00 pmNeal Stimler Key RemarksVideo in digital culture is expression en masse.We are all part of a creators’ collective, tapping into the world with our eyes & hands, making & sharingaesthetic understandings.Expression is hyper-dynamic, with mobility, speed & transmutational power that the digital brings to dailylife.We are seemingly in constant flux between a sense of “truth” with instant viral video & the filtered lens - adocu-memory metamorphosis.Video in digital culture is an asset.Video infinitely springs forth from a still frame to motion - animation & reanimation - gives us ability toplayback life itself.Video is of the moment of its creation & becomes the enduring legacy of cultural memory - timely &timeless.With video much of what has been captured will be lost - a fragile and impermanent nature - how do weencode culture for the future?Video in digital culture is content.The density of video presents substantial amounts of sensory material to cohere through layers ofmeaning.Although dense, one can still digest the complexity of expression & form channeled through video into itsessences.Video is impactful & resonant in digital culture as we buffer life together bit by bit streaming into eachother.Video’s Relationship to Museums in Digital Culture is one of kinship through musing, seeing andmaking meaning.Disclaimer: The remarks herein are the personal views of Neal Stimler and do not necessarily reflect theviews of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License.
