  • Description and goals

    “You change the exhibition” is a conceptual Museum 2.0 add-on for the upcoming exhibition “Taranaki Culture – Fresh out of the Box” at Puke Ariki Museum in New Zealand in 2009. It visualizes the interest of the museum visitors in each exhibition object. The project will help you to find the most interesting objects of the exhibition.

    The project consists of two parts one online, the other in the museum.
    What you see online are 15 objects, which are exhibited at the museum. A blue background light shines in all boxes. This light indicates the interest of the previous visitors. The light in the boxes changes intensity depending on your interest in the object, glowing brighter or dimmer the more or less you pay attention to the object.
    At the museum is the interest of the visitors at the museum also measured and visualized. People at the museum can see the online as well as the onsite interest.
