Post-Truth Tour Guide: A Tool for Experimental Museum Navigation

Project Details


We want to create a new tool to encourage exploratory museum navigation, where visitors will be given fresh perspectives on collections and experience new things with every visit. Using ludic methods of exploration and semi-believable interfaces, our mobile app will offer playful museum / archive tours through the use of ambiguous text prompts. Using our app will be a bit like having an enthusiastic but mischievous curator standing over your shoulder making you question and scrutinise what's in front of you. By shaking up the curated museum experience, and putting you at the centre of the museum tour, we aim to give visitors the agency to create their own perspective. Ultimately we want people to look at museum collections and archives in a new and profoundly deeper way.
