St. Louis Art MuseumThe St. Louis Art Museum is using iPods to enhance visitor’s experience of Remote Viewing, an exhibit that looks at how contemporary art can transform the chaos and information overload of our daily lives into invented worlds that exist somewhere between abstraction and representation.The museum is distributing iPods, along with a 40-minute multimedia tour. (The museum describes it as a podcast, but it does not appear to be publicly published.) iPods will be given to each gallery visitor who can provide a credit card for security purposes.

iPod multimedia tours represent the state of the art for audio tours that some museums have been offering for years.On the multimedia tour, artists speak about their work as images stream by. The podcasts were written by curator Robin Clark and Louise Cameron of the museum education department.

Information on the exhibit is available at the St. Louis Art Museum site.
