The presentation explores people's engagement with technology in museums, galleries, science centres and heritage sites. It highlights the tension between the interaction with other people and the interaction with technology in museums. By drawing on the current discourse that either over-emphasizes the opportunities offered by technology in museums or argues that "technology ruins" art and people's experience of art the presentations arrives at some suggestions for the design of technology to be deployed in exhibitions.
The presentation was delivered at the Museums and Heritage Show 2013 in London as part of a seminar series sponsored by Electrosonic.
