Digital display: Introducing the Adobe Museum of Digital Media

The latest venture from the creators of Photoshop is a virtual art gallery

Called the Adobe Museum of Digital Media, the venue based in cyberspace, has a suitably futuristic building designed by Italian architect Filippo Innocenti (below) and is curated by Tom Eccles, the director of the Centre for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, and boasts work by US video artist Tony Oursler. Japanese artist Mariko Mori is preparing new work for its virtual gallery spaces. Since March the museum has been hosting virtual lectures by the likes of designer John Maeda, the president of the Rhode Island School of Design. Back in the real classroom, Maeda suffered a vote of no confidence at the design school, following controversial plans to merge the faculties of fine art, architecture and design.
