Seven of our staff joined representatives from twelve cultural institutions from around the world to develop Web3 literacies and learn more about what blockchain technologies might offer the arts and cultural sectors.
Our digital initiatives are driven by an ethos of open sourced and open access technologies wherever possible.
In 2020, ACMI partnered with Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum (DFF) in Frankfurt to create an interactive visitor experience for their museum inspired by ACMI’s Constellation. Funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation, the project will advance DFF’s digital transformation and it will be completed in June 2024.
XOS (eXperience Operating System) is a collection of software and related hardware devices that we use to run exhibitions. It connects together collection data, images and videos, Internet-of-things (IoT) devices in the exhibition, constellations and content online and is designed to deepen the impact our exhibitions have on our visitors. We do this through the Lens.
