“We go to museum because We want to know our ancestors,

we want to find out the connection between us and the history.”
— visitor I interview at lacma
 
 
 

WHY SHOULD WE CARE

ART WORTH SPREADING

People visit museum to make connection to history and culture, because that’s the only place that displays both the present and the past of that community in which it belongs to. But not every have the knowledge to interpret the meaning behind each of the artworks.

As a designer, I want to make museum accessible to everyone cause those values deserve to be spread!

DESIGN DECISION

3 TYPES OF USER

I’ve found that depending on visitors’ purposes of visiting, their behavior will be slightly different. So based on that I categorized 3 types of visitor persona, and listed the features they are looking for.

ANNOTATION

My research indicates visitors like to explore by themselves. That’s why I decided to use annotations to show meaning behind each symbol. Users get to choose which one to look at, and won’t get spoiled!
