Museums are traditionally institutions that collect, preserve and interpret real objects, but what happens to collections in the age of the unreal, where virtual reality experiences and high fidelity copies are commonplace? How can museums use new technologies to enhance and interpret, rather than replace historical objects? And how will visitors interact with museums of the future?

Dr Andrew Yip researches the applications for interactive digital environments and emerging new media technologies in the gallery and museum sector. In a new partnership with the Art Gallery of NSW, he joined the Laboratory for innovation in Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (iGLAM) as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in 2014.
