Art Processors is an experiential design consultancy specializing in creating rich, immersive experiences for museums and visitor attractions using creative technology.
Combining multisensory storytelling, location awareness, the latest in extended reality and digital technologies, together with actionable analytics, we enable institutions and attractions to be more creative, not less. We provide technology that helps you innovate and delight visitors with experiences that are on par with the world’s best. Whether it’s a location-aware audio tour, an interactive mobile experience, or something we dream up just for you, everything we do is in service of elevating your space, not our product.
Established in 2011, Art Processors was born out of a desire to help people experience art and objects in a deeper way; to give people the ability to absorb meanings and messages, to further interrogate artworks and artefacts, and to enhance emotional response without detracting or distracting from the physical space.
Our first experience, The O, put the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) at the forefront of mobile technology—and continues to push the boundaries of museum experiences. To date, the platform has been used by over 3.5 million visitors and has operated with 99.99% uptime for nearly a decade.
We enjoy collaborative, long-term partnerships with our clients, ensuring the ongoing and successful use and iterative improvement of the creative technology solutions we deliver. Our clients include Mona, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australian War Memorial, the Australian Sports Museum, the Smithsonian, and The Getty.
We are a multidisciplinary team of 40 producers, designers, developers, engineers and other specialists working across offices in New York City, Washington D.C., Atlanta, and San Francisco in the United States, and Melbourne and Hobart in Australia.
Our project management and delivery capabilities are enhanced by our investment in core in-house infrastructure, in particular our Museum Operating System (MOS). Our proprietary MOS platform provides a consistent, scalable, and future-ready digital content delivery platform on top of which we can build highly-customized, multisensory experiences specific to our clients’ needs.
Our successful innovations are built upon ongoing research into technologies that enable more intuitive and inclusive interactions with our beautiful and curious world. We strive to continually improve our work, seeing projects through to completion and beyond.
