Film: Future Proofing the Digital Museum

With a mission to explore the collision of arts and science, Science Gallery Melbourne is attempting to crack an important problem with an unorthodox approach.

Through design research, we are developing a functional brief for the ultimate digital fit-out. In this talk, we will share an overview of global cases, and provide insights on future-proofing an immersive digital environment.
