I see what you mean / Scenarios for exhibitions

I see what you mean
I see what you mean

«I see what you mean» is a theoretical Master Thesis. By means of participatory workshop methodologies and research in the fields of hearing-impaired culture as well as museum education this project explored two main questions. First, how can information for hearing-impaired and hearing people be equally barrier-free accessible? And second, how can social or communicative value be generated? It shows a new point of view on barrier-free information by placing virtual or physical «social objects» in exhibitions. Two scenarios (1) «Share virtual object(s)» and (2) «Visual intervention by real objects» are developed and discussed in this thesis.
