Build a Visitor Experience Response Portal
Museums are constantly searching for methods to make visitor experience more enriching and engaging, and part of that process is learning what audiences want, how audiences operate in the museum, and how the museum experience is perceived by the public. Is there a new method of getting visitor feedback that hasn't been discovered and can help build on information learned through comment books, market research and interviews? What is it really like for visitors to come to the Walters? Can we expand on current methods of research such as question and answer, surveys etc -- perhaps even move beyond the primacy of text as a mode of response?
Maybe the answer could be an app that unites the interactivity of a game platform with the research methodologies of a medical assessment tool, or an app that translates biometric responses to certain works or experiences into data. Is it possible to measure an individual's response to art in a truly meaningful way?
