Can virtual museums threaten real museums?

first_imgThe first online museum has opened in Croatia – a virtual place that brings together the best works of contemporary art authors applied for the competition “HT Award – MSU Zagreb” since this competition exists to this day.This is an interesting fusion of art and digital and in this way the artist and creator of the museum, Juri Armada brings creativity closer to the younger generations, while on the other hand he breathed new life into contemporary art. Neon installations, photographs and everything that has been exhibited in the museum for the last nine years are now available with a few clicks and bring art to your home.The new project is especially interesting because in a completely new way it encourages the research of art as a special form for the growth, education and mature development of each person. By the way, the HT Award for Croatian Contemporary Art is the largest and at the same time one of the most significant awards for contemporary visual creativity in Croatia. The exhibition of selected works over the past ten years has been profiled into a representative and relevant overview of the situation on the domestic art scene. Over the past decade, more than two hundred authors have applied for the competition each year, and three redemption and one audience award have been given each year. The purchased works form the collection of Hrvatski Telekom, which is an integral part of the holdings of the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, and the works will be exhibited in a permanent exhibition.Can virtual museums threaten real museums? Will tourists travel less because they will have a 3D destination experience from the comfort of their armchairs and thus reduce the arrival of guests in real time? Is it threatening VR tourism or is it another promotional tool that can generate new feelings, experiences in tourism and ultimately increase the arrival of tourists in a tourist destination?There are a lot of questions, but you don’t have to worry, I can’t. On the contrary, new technologies (VR, AR, virtual museums) are not a threat, but an opportunity for tourism in order to better present tourist destinations. “VR can only improve tourism. When you try go-karting in virtual reality, then you really want to go go-karting or an airplane or something else. ” – pointed out Hrvoje Prpić, a business angel and a successful entrepreneur, and the originator of the 3D online shopping project Trillenium. Also, today, and there will be more and more, through virtual reality we can “be” virtually in a destination, but it will only awaken the motive for a real and real experience, ie coming to a tourist destination for a real experience.So is the virtual museum, which can only further popularize the consumption of culture and encourage you to finally visit, for example, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb. More and more individual museums also have their own virtual display, all with the goal of getting the desire and motivation to experience live art.It’s like a football match, when you see on television that something is great and cool then you want to experience it live, if it were the opposite, football matches would have been without fans in stadiums for a long time due to TV broadcastsNew technologies provide new challenges and business opportunities, the only question is whether we want to ignore it or accept it as a normal business process. It is important to follow new trends and technological achievements because if destinations and hoteliers do not follow the step, time and technology will overtake them and they will no longer be able to follow the market competition.Anyway, technology is there to help and speed up all business processes, changes are happening faster and those who ignore it will unfortunately have to close their doors. Don’t be afraid of new technologies, but use them to improve your business.last_img read more

Leafs land recruits to gear up for the KIJHL stretch run

first_imgDave McLellan has been around the junior-hockey-coaching block more than once.However, during his tenure behind the bench he’s never been part of a team that has been snake bitten as much as the Green and White.For the umpteenth weekend this season the Nelson Leafs enter Kootenay International Junior Hockey League play with the coaching staff not knowing how many or which players will be taking to the ice.“If I knew the players we had playing maybe I could tell you what we expect this weekend,” a puzzled McLellan said on the eve of Thursday practice at the NDCC Arena.Nelson is on the road for a pair of games against Eddie Mountain opposition.Friday, the Leafs are in Invermere to face the Columbia Valley Rockies before concluding the two-game swing Saturday in Fernie against the Ghostriders.“At this stage I’m hopeful we can find a way to win both games,” McLellan added. “That would be great for us, but at this stage we’ll just see what happens.”McLellan is optimistic some players that have been out of the lineup for quite some time — Patrick Croome and Blair Andrews — may be back on the bench for the weekend.However, while Nelson could get two key starters back, two more are in sick bay — Matt MacDonald and Aaron Brewer — and two others — Dylan Williamson and Brandon Chow — remain out of the lineup.Next home game for the Leafs, 1-3 to start 2015, is Friday, January 23 against Creston Valley Thunder Cats.Help is, hopefully, on its wayLeaf coach Dave McLellan felt like the Maytag Repairman prior to the BC Hockey January 10 roster deadline period as no one was calling the Heritage City franchise skipper.Still McLellan was able to snatch a few prospects from outside the KIJHL.McLellan traded for the rights to defenceman Brendan Grier from Comox of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League. Grier, a 6’5”, 230-pound defenceman is a prospect of the Victoria Royals of the Western Hockey League.McLellan is trying to convince Grier to return to hockey this season after the 17-year-old rearguard decided to hang up the skates due to a personal matter.The Leaf coach did find 17-year-old Tyler Fyfe, who was out of hockey after going home from the Peninsula Panthers of the VIJHL.The six-foot, 170-pound Fyfe was traded to Peninsula from Creston Valley Thunder Cats of the KIJHL.Nelson also welcomed back suspended forward Brendan Smith to the lineup.The six-foot 180-pound blueliner was hurt since being suspended by the Leafs in October.Time to put up, or shut up for Green and WhiteNow that the rosters are set, it’s time for the Leafs to make a statement or dig out the golf clubs for the summer break.“Getting ready for the playoffs been our main focus since we came back from the (Christmas) break,” McLellan said.“What we need is to get our key players back in the lineup to figure out what we’ve got but that’s difficult to do until we get them back,” he adds.McLellan likes the make up of the Leafs on paper.He’s happy with the forwards, is happy to have been able to solidify the blueline and is confident one of the two goalies — Adam Maida or Joey Karrer — will step up to lead the Leafs come playoff time.“I’ve talked to and challenged both goalies to be better and get ready for the playoff process,” McLellan said.“We’re going to see who is going to step up and be that guy for us in the playoffs.”Next up, Rockies, RidersNelson’s opposition Friday, Columbia Valley, currently sits last in the Eddie Mountain Division with an 8-26-0-0-6 mark.However, the Rockies are on a one game win streak.Meanwhile, Fernie, Saturday’s test, leads the Eddie Mountain group at 28-9-1-0-2. But the Riders have lost three straight heading into the weekend.last_img read more
