The mission of museums in the 21st century

May 4th, 2017|0 Comments

Youth, Diversity, Sharing

The visitor attractiveness is a daily challenge for these institutions, which have to deploy more imagination and ways to attract visitors.

“Museums in the 21st century must assert themselves as common, accessible and open to all. At the same time, they are places of creation and innovation. ”

Audrey Azoulay has presented her project in early March to revive the museum flame.
This project involves bringing younger and more diverse populations into cultural institutions, creating new interactions with the public. It is the second mission defined by ICOM all over again: the valorisation of heritage.
By means of museum-specific arrangements, charters or seduction operations for young audiences, museums must redouble their efforts to accomplish this mission.

What systems exist today?

Definition of the Internet of Things
As a reminder, “The Internet of Things represents the extension of the Internet to things and places in the physical world.” [Src: Wikipedia]

The Museum’s missions to innovative solutions
– Protecting heritage:

Conserve, restore, protect, study and enrich their collections
· The Internet of Things facilitates this mission. Temperature and humidity sensors automatically report any abnormalities detected in the works.
· The heritage protection mission also involves anti-theft / anti-vandalism security. Motion, shock and vibration sensors report in real time any bad action on the artworks and, as far as possible, stop the disaster.

Directory: Inventorying & safeguarding contemporary scientific and technical heritage

March 10th, 2017|0 Comments

The National Mission for the Safeguarding of Contemporary Scientific and Technical Heritage: PATSTEC

“he main objectives of this mission are to sensitize and preserve the memory of the material (instruments and documents) and immaterial (know-how) traces of public and private research actors.

This mission shows that for many years, actions have been taken to preserve and enhance all types of heritage, as shown by the inventory and safeguarding of scientific and technical instruments, which have been running since 2003.

Mission tools: a database and a website.

From the beginning, efforts have been made at the software level to optimize the exploitation of the information collected on the objects: XML export functions, an SQL transfer to establish gateways and transfer the content to another management software of these bases …

What about other hardware tools? What technologies to automate inventories?

It is necessary to be able to identify a technology capable of automating and centralizing the feedback. Older industrial tools such as the barcode are sometimes used, but they do not have advantages.
– The number of information stored is very small,
– The stored information can not be updated,
– The reading of the label is binding (distance, must necessarily be accessible …)

Radio Frequency Identification – RFID technology compensates for all these constraints.
There are thousands of different formats and materials of RFID tags to fit the object to be identified. The advantage of RFID also lies in the use of international standards and standards. Thus the invested equipment (RFID reader, terminals …) can be shared and compatible from one institution to another.

The link between a connected work of art and social networks is fundamental. The connected artwork allows through the visitor application to collect factual and objective data about the visitor.

How many profiles are subscribed to the museum? What is he looking at? For how long ? What path does he take? How often has the show been “liked” or shared on social networks?

For temporary exhibitions, think about electronic protection!

March 10th, 2017|0 Comments

We are constantly questionned about our solutions to protect a temporary exhibition. Often the first approach of the museum is to say: “All these solutions are interesting, but we will do everything to convince the lender that we can do without electronic security.” Yet this is very risky and it reflects another paradoxical reality: most of us acquire a domestic alarm after the burglary. It is the same for cultural institutions.

Why put such a risk on the work of art while there are autonomous, inexpensive and efficient systems to protect it and in addition gain the trust of the lenders?

This proverb of another time must have resonated to a lot of ears, this would explain the increases of museums frequentations the last years!

Since the emergence of audioguides in the 1980s, digital tools have become a real game card.

Social networks and mobile applications echo the expansion of smartphones. Internet will never have been so present in the life of a museum, even Google strives to make culture live on the web, Twitter organizes a week once a year of cultural & scientific exchanges: MuseumWeek, as far as Facebook is concerned, is considered “inevitable”.

Evolution lesson

March 9th, 2017|0 Comments

From the security of works of art to multimedia: a lesson on evolution.

In 1965, Gordon E. Moore, co-founder of Intel issued a postulate on the evolution of the power of electronics.
The version commonly used (a little false compared to the original version …) explains that electronics double its treatment power every eighteen months.

Gordon Moore was wrong on one point: he thought his postulate would only be true for a few years, but most of his ideas are still relevant today, especially regarding the reduction in the size of electronic devices.

Moore’s law can be generalized and applied to many fields, monalitag® detectors do not escape:

Stop vandalism

If we have some statistics on the number of thefts, it is difficult to find information on the number of degradations, and yet …

By talking with many establishments (museums, places of worship, art gallery, exhibition center, luxury hotels …), we realize that none of them has escaped from deterioration of the environment and works of art.

The new version of the mOOnTAG allows hypersensitive detections up to 10mG.
This allows detection of the slightest contact with the object.

It means Bring Your Own Device.
In companies this means that staff use their personal equipment (telephone, laptop, tablet) to work.

For museums, allowing visitors to use their tablet or smartphone to accompany the visit has only advantages:
– No need to provide a park of equipment for the visitors,
– No maintenance of these equipment, no cleaning,
– No need to organize the loan and to ensure the return of the equipment with, for example, the deposit of an identity document.
