Enhancing On-site Interaction and Personalization in Museum and Art Gallery through digital technology
Digital curation is an emerging topic of interest in the current museum development. If onsite museum experience can be enhanced by digital technology, the development of digital curation in cultural expression can not only promote the role of museum in this digital era but also boost the value of cultural heritage more than ever before. Our objective is to design a prototype for enhancing the factors of interaction and personalization between visitors and collections in onsite museum and art gallery, focusing on the user experience's perspective. The prototype is processed by two different sections, an UI mobile interface in the front-end for visitors to interact with collections during the visiting, and a collection database in the back-end where store collections information using semantic technology. In this article, we discuss the design of the UI interface for a series of Australian paintings in the National Gallery of Australia, and illustrate the framework of how the visitors' behaviour can be detected by interacting with designed interface, and thereby offering a feedback of recommendation for establishing a personal Visiting route.
