'Are you a reader in museum' project is questioning the role of the description in a museum. It is a group project which I worked with 3 amazing designers: Tingshuo Chen, Hyerim Ju, Kawisara Anansaringkarn Poon.
We started this project by questioning the role of the description in the museum. It is because most of the audiences tend to experience the exhibition by reading the museum description. They seem to spend more time reading the text rather than looking at the object itself, especially conceptual art, which meaning is the most important part. From this kind of behavior and the audience’s relationship with object and description, we start to see they are changing their roles. What if the description turns into an object whereas the object itself functions as a description?
Consequently, our museum, we challenge this relationship by replacing the original object with a descriptive form for a conceptual art collection. However, the descriptive form that we use is not something just telling what it is like the typical description but making people wonder and think. Therefore, we extract the main meaning by using just text as only one material.
《在博物馆中，你是否是一名读者？》是一个与其他三位非常优秀的设计师合作完成的设计项目。过程非常有趣愉悦，充满了思辨。他们分别是：Tingshuo Chen, Hyerim Ju, Kawisara Anansaringkarn Poon.
