Display of interactive artwork: pilot test of two different interfaces
Burrows, Gary; Hauber, Joerg; Regenbrecht, Holger
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. We 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. We describe the first iteration cycle of a questionnaire we composed which especially targets viewer satisfaction in a gallery context. The results of our 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.
