My first recommendation in January is the new tool from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, from the media department that is called Connections.
The main feature of Connections is a four-minute-long interactive audiovisual experience. Three additional juxtapositions of images are presented in In Time, In the World, and In the Museum.There are three chapters in the section:
- In Time: places works selected in a bar time for chronological meaning
- In The World: places works against a map
- In the Museum: places the work in relation to all the information the museum is offering for the selected piece.
I find it an easy way to get an insight on the work of museum people and a first step to understand their daily tasks on a more accessible way, with a personal approach.
