    The outcome has given us 5 main areas of focus each with subcategories the Area is GLOBAL and not specific to GB.
    1. CULTURE  = Fashion // Music // Lifestyle // Icons – Eg. Celebrity, Politician, King // Games //

    2. Science & Technology = Medical breakthrough // Invention & innovation //

    3. Media = TV // Radio // News // Politics // Film

    4. Art & Design = Artists // Famous works // Designs an Artifacts

    5, History & Geography = Environmental issues // Weather //

    Things that were added to the list of interactive elements include ‘A photo booth’ = add yourself to the experience  a ‘costume maker’ dresses the visitor in the period of the exhibition ‘suggestion post’ to prompt certain years fot the visitor unsure of what to select  – info kiosk that plucks facts from the data base to highlight facts, this could be inside and outside the experience

    The ability to change the date should be on all of the interactive inputs – and also when no information of any major relevance is on that year information about the period be offered as a general piece of text and/or visual.

    Tone of voice was discussed and the decision was made no to over complicate or over intellectualise the information or dumb it down too much Humour can be and should be utilised throughout the experience .

    That concluded…

    Erica is going to chose a the Year in the 1980’s  –
    Kevin to explore 1960’s
    Stefano is thinking of a character somewhere between 1930 – 1945
    to balance things out I can either make the character really young past 10 years old – or focus on the very early years in the exhibition 1920’s. the likelihood of big numbers of visitors in their 100’s is far less likely than 10 year olds arriving en-masse with their parents.  So for me it’s the year 2000 Y2K.
    Have a cool weekend, see you all monday, enjoy!!!

    TIME TRAVELLER Social profiling of 4 peo… 

    Social profiling of 4 people likely to set through the door of the BMTT (british museum time traveller) Experience

    Essentially 4 years to explore. pick dates and people. 1 each or all four? whats your thoughts?

    Culture Social. Fashion/ -What was popular Music/Dance/ Charts music stats? FILM/TELEVISION (dance steps perhaps) etc
    Politics. (sets a tone for what was happening globally and not just in one country of nationality this could also include )
    Art & Design? (i’d be interested if this was a facet in any exhibition – Objects that could have a relevance to the BM Collection)
    Technology and Invention. (Artefacts and exhibits from the BM plus details to explain where they exist in the collection // museum map. What was relevant and historically appropriate during that year. Sony WalKman Games console Mobile Phone – Bakelite phones `early Televisions this will have a good relevance to materials and how they shaped the products and social developments

    I think it would be wise not too make it too highbrow and over intellectualise the subject material especially when dealing with a younger target audience.
    the younger the viewer = less text the greater the visual.. generally applies to the older individual also personally i enjoy a mix of the two at an exhibition – guess thats where our text information and blog making facility comes into its own

    As a group before this week is out we need to brainstorm and mindmap the characters and decide upon the years and important and relevant information to highlight
    similarly we need to address the issue of how the information is accessed and navigated… Our previous session gave us a range of exciting and creative solutions to make and produce an engaging experience for visitor to any museum. I think it will be productive and wise to follow up on Liz’s recommendation to collect as much visual information and draft things out on paper in collage format before going back to the computer. think that way we begin to make a solid direction for whats required and by whom.
