Published paper: Particle or Wave? Linear and Non-linear Storytelling in Museums
In this session we will discuss recent mobile based projects that use a mixture of audio interpretation and interactivity to help visitors explore and dive into contents. Our aim is to outline methods, techniques and models of user experiences and shed light on why some interactive experiences are more successful than others. We’ll compare examples where non-linear storytelling worked well and examples where interactivity diluted the experience.
