Tell us a story: interpret, interact, reflect

GAMgame invites visitors to give their interpretation of artworks belonging to the Galleria d'Arte Moderna. It encourages visitors and users' participation with mostly non-verbal communication. Our targeted audience is the deaf community, in particular teenagers. The goal is to create a more welcoming and inclusive environment in the museum and we expect to consolidate the presence of the deaf community in our institution.

What's going on

We are working closely with UniTO on a prototype interface of the GAMgame web application to gather data on artwork interpretation through emoticons and hashtags. The first tests have been held with school, to target teenagers and getting feedback on the first selection of artworks. This gave us a first response to the web app and the way teenagers used the artworks and tool we selected to create their own stories. We then expanded the selection of artworks and started testing the web application in the museum with our targeted community. We held study observation with two different groups from the deaf community: one with deaf teenagers who also had cognitive impairments and one with educators. We are now in the process of assessing their feedbacks and decide how to plan accordingly.

The prototype development and the testing activities inside and outside the museum are accompanied by the research activities on the personas and the scenario.
