Do we really need objects in a gallery or museum now that we have and use the Internet in our everyday lives? What’s the point of physically going somewhere to look at something or learn about something when we can just use google. Yes it’s definitely not the same, and some pictures don’t do the real object justice, however a lot people these days take things for granted because of technology. I feel that there’s no more appreciation for the world through human eyes anymore, but only through technology.
I personally prefer museums based on objects and objects alone. No participation needed or technology to worry about. Just me, the object, and my interpretation. Such simplicity says way more to me and is way more interesting.
