Earlier this month, PEM launched Connected, a museum-wide blog with frequent updates from staff in all kinds of roles. My inaugural post discusses prototyping, with a few brief peeks at the kinds of work we’ve been doing with visitors as we redesign the ANC for its grand reopening on October 19. Check it out here: “Kid tested, guest approved.”
Right now we’re prototyping an interactive for Beyond Human, so I’m curious:
Bees direct other members of their hives to flowers using a ‘waggle dance’ that indicates direction and (to some extent) distance from the hive.
If you were given the opportunity to mimic this ‘waggle dance’ movement through a full-body game invitation in the gallery, would you do it? Why or why not?
