Lightbox Gallery: Introduction

The Lightbox Gallery is a venue for digital experimentation—a space for projects that respond to the museums’ collections through new media and emerging technologies. Developed in collaboration with faculty, staff, students, and visiting artists, the projects showcased here use digital tools to reveal connections between objects and to play with traditional forms of display. Some of these projects are responsive, allowing users to navigate and manipulate the collections; others are cinematic, transforming the museums into a landscape of digital performance. Exploration in the Lightbox is cross-disciplinary, merging a gallery experience with a digital lab.
