Michal Čudrnák: How we can move forward the art in the digital era?

About This Project

Michal vo svojom talku poukazuje na využitie digitálnych technológií v múzeách, vďaka ktorým umenie nestráca svoju hodnotu, ale prekonáva hranice fyzického priestoru a je sprístupnené širšej verejnosti. Vo využití technológií v múzeách a galériach sme však ešte stále na začiatku.

 

About this speaker

Michal has been working at the Slovak National Gallery for more than ten years. During this time, he has had an opportunity to participate in the expansion of its activities in the digital environment – from the electronic recording of art works and digitisation through to the development of websites and applications. As a graduate of Library and Information Sciences at Comenius University, he coincidentally found himself at the department that prepared the transition to a new generation of the Central Register of Art Works. Under this (at first sight unattractive) name is hidden a wealth that distils fine art in the collections of Slovak galleries in the form of metadata and digital reproductions. How can one properly use digital technologies in art galleries and museums? The opportunity to transform (big) data into an attractive appearance is a challenge that motivates him when working on various projects. Whether it is an audio guide, which guides the gallery visitors through stories accompanied by field recordings, or a sketchbook app allowing you to scroll through the artists’ notebooks for lab.SNG, his motivation is to communicate the experience of art.
