I walked into the Sound Studio this morning and noticed something I thought was really nice. Check out these three pictures below:
These three exhibits- Pinbell, Hole Saw Rhythms, and mmmtsss- were all carefully chosen for the Sound Studio, and it seems our visitors are making good connections between them. The kids playing at Pinbell were using only the wood blocks to make noises. The kids at mmmtsss were using their voices along with the hole saws from hole saw rhythms and the wood pieces and bells from Pinbell. And the adults at Hole Saw Rhythms were playing with bells and metal cylinders from Pinbell as well. To me, this says that we 1) provided exhibits that visitors engaged with for so long that they wanted more to do there, and that we 2) provided an environment where visitors felt comfortable using their resourcefulness to take some ownership of the space and exhibits and use them creatively. I like that elements from all 3 exhibits can give the visitors a richer experience than each exhibit alone.
