Social Object Labels
This project develops design guidelines for Social Object Labels (SOLs); an in-gallery commenting system aiming to foster public debate around exhibits. SOLs are small, interactive, e-ink screens that complement the museum voice with a public visitor voice. From a domain perspective, the project researches social interpretation as a way to foster engagement and learning in museums. From an application perspective, the project adresses issues around user-generated content. From an HCI perspective, the project investigates how we can we attach digital information to physical objects and places in a way that is easily discoverable and encourages interaction.
