Community Curation of Small-Scale Animation and Video for Museums


Wednesday, 3 August, 3:45 - 5:15 pm
Forum: Learning Projects
Room 502B

How museum staff and volunteers can use newer technologies and techniques to storyboard, process, construct, and incorporate small-scale animation and video resources into gallery and education program design without detracting from the objects on display, cluttering the gallery space, or applying a logistical nightmare to an educator's presentation. Specifically, this paper covers development and production of three multimedia modules: a video project documenting Alaska Native artists at work, an animation project on the science of the Northern Lights, and a video-animation project that illustrates the cultural significance and function of the Inupiaq toggling harpoon head.
