December 19th 2014: Objects of Experience

Objects are at the heart of museums, and their power can be harnessed to connect people to themselves, to others and to the world. This is the core thesis of The Objects of Experience: Transforming Visitor-Object Encounters in Museums (2014, Left Coast Press). This week, authors Elee Wood and Kiersten Latham describe their theoretical and practical framework for identifying the variety of ways museum visitors encounter objects and how these connections can be used to enhance the museum experience.
