Micromuseums

THE FIRST DISTRIBUTED MUSEUM

MICRO is building a fleet of six foot tall museums.

Our team of scientists, designers and storytellers take a vast, complex world, and squeeze it down into boxes the size of vending machines.

 

GO FORTH AND MULTIPLY

We replicate the museums, and send them out to the groups and venues in your community who want you to know about the secret systems that run the cosmos.

From hospital waiting rooms to the DMV, MICRO’s fleet of museums show up in the places you least expect them.

The Museum as Workspace

Ask anyone who works at a museum what they love about their job, and chances are they won’t respond “my workspace.” Generally located in the bowels of the building, museum workspaces are notoriously unpleasant: often windowless and, depending on the age of the building, maybe not originally intended as workspaces. Among the several museums at which I’ve worked or interned, my desk has been located in: a busy hallway, a closet for marketing materials, and a repurposed storage room that opened only onto the exhibition space.

Creating a Snapchat Geofilter for your Museum

Snapchat is the breakout social network of the past few years, growing to over 300 million users. The average Snapchat user will spend 25-30 minutes on the app daily.

Snapchat allows you to send videos and pictures, both of which will self-destruct after a few seconds of a person viewing them.

It is currently the most popular social media platform amongst teens, though has in the past year seen a surge in growth from over 25-year-olds.

Los museos suman chats con las obras, recorridos 360º y audioguías por Spotify

Con inteligencia artificial, recorridos 360º y listas de música online, la tecnología se mete en los museos; y genera un nuevo tipo de interacción entre los visitantes y las obras. ¿Cómo te llamás? ¿Quién es tu autor? ¿Cuántos años tenés? Son algunas de las preguntas que el público que visite el Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (Mamba) puede hacerle a la obra Bio Cosmos, del artista Emilio Renart.

Conxa Rodà: "La innovación digital requiere actitud y aptitud”

Conxa Rodà es ante todo una apasionada de la lectura, los idiomas y el lenguaje. Es tan claro que al escucharla o leerla sus palabras evidencian esa pasión en cada palabra que utiliza para contar quién es y qué hace. La misma pasión que la llevó a estudiar filología, primero, y más tarde profundizar su conocimiento en el universo de la comunicación, “que no deja de tener el lenguaje como armazón”, según explica.
