How can the museum, as an archive of humans and time, adapt to our contemporary paradigms of social & digital media, image sharing, and exponential development technology and digital experience? How can our experiences and memory be augmented by technology in such a way that harnesses our connectedness?  M.E.Museum proposes a new travelling museum typology capable of occupying public spaces ubiquitous to Cities, providing a platform for local expertise—artists, scientists, historians, and others—to bring their ideas to larger audiences through public spaces. A “Plug & Play” format allows for the presentation of their ideas to be easily broadcasted by non-linear means, leveraging social media and the museum’s festival format to promote sharing between visitors and patrons. The museum is comprised of multiple M.E.Capsules that are scattered among public spaces of varying sizes throughout the city. Each capsule becomes an exhibition within itself; it becomes the engines driving a larger exhibition using the public space as its stage. The museum manifests itself in multiple places in a single city in structures where hologram and large scale image projection, audio, and olfactory technologies are given to local experts. With these tools, local expertise can bring digital media out of the screen and into the public realm at infinite scales. Public access and large scale digital media sharing turns the exhibition into an event – using individual accounts of the event to act as “snacks” and having the Event itself be the “meal.” Varying scales of projections and AV technology bring a unique experience that cannot be replicated through small scale social media, making the museum an authentic space that must be experienced physically. Additionally, communications technologies provide highlights through which people share the museum as it grains traction in each visiting city.
