Mapping Museum Experience

eMotion researches the museum-going experience experimentally. At the heart of the project is the investigation of the psychogeographical effect of the museum on the museum visitor.

Museum visitors who took part in the project, were given an insight into their own art reception as well as their psychological reaction to their museum visit. Scientific and artistic research methods were integrated into the experimental setting.

The fielding took place between 5th June and the 16th August 2009 in the Art Museum (Kunstmuseum) St.Gallen, Switzerland.

eMotion is a research project at the Institute for Research in Art and Design, University of Applied Science Northwestern Switzerland, Academy of Art and Design and has been generously supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation and Ubisense.
