Resonant Transitions

Navigating transitional spaces within a museum environment through sonic and visual design

Museums and traditional spaces of learning are merging, and yet museums are no longer about information. Emerging concepts in museology position exhibitions as places of transformation that are psychological, intellectual, emotional, social, cultural – not just a place to impart information.

In the museum environment, thematic displays are areas of demanding cognitive processing, while transitional spaces provide a counterpoint. Using techniques from mobility studies and interaction design, the studio investigated visual and sonic designs for the transitional spaces of the Melbourne Museum.
