This paper explores a range of immersive and experiential media technologies and how they are being used to engage visitors in narrative context for cultural and historical artifacts. The “on-site” experience is changing, particularly in cultural museums. This paper focuses on the use of advanced digital media technologies in creating immersive, story-driven visitor experiences, and explores how new media technologies are being used to create cultural context and narratives. It raises issues of representation, authenticity, integrity, and inclusivity.

Assistant Professor, School of Communication, Film and Media Arts, American University, USA

I come from a lengthy career as a documentary filmmaker, with a few forages into interactive multimedia in the 1990s at Apple Computer and my own company 100th Monkey Media. From 1995 to 2004, I was a producer and then Senior Producer of National Geographic’s weekly documentary series “Explorer” and “Ultimate Explorer”. In 2005, I founded Blue Bear Films, a media design and production company that has produced the media technology for large traveling exhibitions such as “Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs”, “Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures”, and “Real Pirates: the Untold Story of the Whydah from Slave Ship to Pirate Ship”, among many others. I am also a faculty member of the Film and Media Arts department at American University in Washington DC. My graduate degree is from Stanford University in Communication, specializing in Documentary Film.
