What do you think of above?
  • I think the one-per-screen dynamic could be a challenge in the Met's crowded walkways. Physical models/maquettes have proven success in aiding with spatial awareness, but are not necessarily dynamic tools for education and branding purposes
  • It seems that these screens also create a new representational mode for Texas history- Windows for visitors to stand before and explore the terrain in front of them. The layered images, icons, invitations to share and interact are spread across a linear plane, meaning their kinetic senses of movement and exploration are enacted.
  • My conclusion is that visitor experience is so much a matter of physics- viewing angles, sizes of frames, pediments, cases and stantions, width of hallways, doorways, and bathroom stalls. This wall works as an outside feature- I can't see it in the met's upper floors, but perhaps in the Education center or outside? Curious for everyone else's thoughts.

"First-time visitors to the Met frequently become lost, and others often find themselves in galleries they claim to have never seen, even after many years of visiting. My 3D-printed scale models, floor plans and tactile graphic maps are minimum viable products that can assist volunteers, staff and visitors in new ways with meeting the challenges of wayfinding in the museum."
