The research is carried out in the framework of an international interdisciplinary project that brings together Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture and ZKM – Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (Germany), the Centre Pompidou, Paris (France), the Ludwig Muzeum, Budapest (Hungary), Tallin Art Hall (Estonia) and Tirana Art Lab (Albania). The institutions encompass the fields of cultural heritage, digital art conservation, digitalising heritage, new media art and experimental museology.

In broadest terms, this practice-based research in the emerging field of virtual museology is concerned with developing novel engagement approaches with the aim to encourage co-creative participatory practices for community involvement. The research takes a particular interest in facilitating the audience engagement with museums and digital heritage as well as studying audiences’ responses to digital cultural heritage and to virtual exhibitions. The research supports further development and implementation of Performance-oriented Research Methods for Audience Studies and Exhibition Evaluation (PORe), a methodology coined by Lily Díaz-Kommonen.

Cvijeta Miljak is a doctoral candidate working as a researcher with Prof. Lily Díaz -Kommonen on the Creative Europe co-funded project Beyond Matter – Cultural Heritage on the Verge of Virtual Reality (2019-2023). Miljak’s interest focuses on exploring emerging narratives, intermedial poetics andi implications of digital tools, through developing experimental methods for nonintrusive participatory evaluation practices to investigate and re-examine the forms of storytelling in the post-digital media.
