I tend to dislike technology in the museum space. I feel like audio guides and computers distract from individual experiences with artworks, because they inform the viewer what to think. I don't mind labels so much, because they often provide merely the title, artist and date. I am not ashamed to admit that people with cameras in museums annoy me - the picture you just took with your camera is not going to do the work justice, and cameras are distracting to everyone around you.
Anyway, with that said, I found this article titled "Apps for MoMa" in the New York Times completely fascinating. I know most people go to museums, especially large museums like the Louvre or the MoMa, to learn about art, and would like an app to help them on their journey. I also know that as an art historian, I am 'an informed viewer,' and I go to museums to interact with artwork on an emotional level, not so much an intellectual level, which happens for me in reading and research. So I see why electronic guides are useful to instruct, but I can't help but want others to experience artwork emotionally and spiritually, without electronic interference. I just don't think a Rothko (or Kandinsky, or Botticelli, or Leonardo) should be approached with a camera in hand. What do you think?
