Spacex Landings is a test case in online access

The second Review Group is tomorrow night at Spacex. During the first one I discovered that the Animate Projects content is mostly online already. I have found a couple of links.


Without You

So have a look if you are not able to visit the actual Spacex. I don't think it will dissuade anyone from making the journey. Without You is on a reasonably sized screen and the other two are projected on large scale. Then there are the books. No hot chocolate as during the snow but then it is getting warmer.

Meanwhile Google offers a digital take on gallery content. As reported in the Observer-

The gallery directors involved in the project are of course confident that the online versions of their collections will extend curiosity rather than satisfying it; that the art project will act as an advertisement for those who can get to the galleries.

One can only assume that the museums not involved – the Louvre in Paris and the Prado in Madrid, for example – are less sure of that equation. As always, with the digitisation of culture, the answer will not be long in coming.

I think that for digital video a mix of online and galleries could work quite well. It seems a natural progression and allows social media to build around this base.
