What’s The Big Idea? Virtual reality history at the Ayala Museum

Rappler.com
How did the big idea of Jose Rizal's execution in virtual reality evolve? How is technology changing the way curators present art and culture?

MANILA, Philippines – Ayala Museum has refreshed its long-running diorama exhibit with a virtual reality film of Jose Rizal’s execution. More VR films may follow.

It’s just one way the museum is trying to attract a wider, younger audience to art and history. Not all these efforts use the latest technology. Some use old-fashioned marketing techniques.

Coco Alcuaz talks with museum director Mariles Gustilo and VR project producer Ibba Bernardo about shooting Rizal multiple times and how this fits into their mission. – Rappler.com
