Abstract

The purpose of this study was to make the appreciation in the museum that visitors understood precious cultural artifacts more deeply. We designed an embodied appreciation system called MeLight that allows various visitors including children to actively appreciate exhibits they are interested in. MeLight was installed in the Tokyo National Museum. We observed users during use of MeLight, and it seemed that they often traced the contour of coastlines with the flashlight device. As a result, it was effective to design, implement and introduce a system in which visitors used physical interaction to trigger active appreciation of and interest in the museum’s cultural assets.
