Display of Interactive Artwork: Pilot Test of two Different Interfaces

Presented at SIRC 2007 – The 19th Annual Colloquium of the Spatial Information Research Centre University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand December 6th-7th 2007

The display of interactive artwork plays an increasingly important role in modern museums and galleries. However, the reaction of visitors has not been extensively tested to date. This paper present a pilot study that investigates viewer's reactions towards two interactive display prototypes that were designed to present famous artwork in a new and more engaging way. They describe the first iteration cycle of a questionnaire that they composed which especially targets viewer satisfaction in a gallery context. The results of their first pilot study indicate that (1) interactive displays in galleries can create an engaging and exciting experience and (2)  that they can be especially suitable to present education about art in a new and more involving way.
