Beyond the Digital Guide: cultural objects, gallery spaces and mobile devices

This presentation reports upon the findings of a one-day workshop hosted by CRASSH (University of Leicester) 28 November 2013, chaired by Dr Ross Parry and Alex Moseley from the University of Leicester.

12 experts in experience, museum, mobile and digital design were set the task of identifying how the gallery environment and the proximity of museum collections to the visitor affect the design of in-gallery mobile media applications.

Framing its conclusions with the concept of the 'Postdigital Museum', the group concluded that:

Designing with mobile proximate to the collection means:
- scale becomes meaningful
- opportunities for embodied experience emerge
- touch is possible
- physical collaboration and interaction between visitors becomes possible

When designing with mobile, being in-gallery means:
- more control over staging and framing
- acknowledging the visitor’s commitment to a visit event.

More generally, mobile design in the postdigital museum
means:
- creative blends and augmentations of digital and physical;
- and a different physical relationship with (and new metaphors for) mobile devices
