In this session, four authors from the spring 2017 issue of Exhibition—“Designing Emotion”—will discuss how exhibit design and interpretive techniques can be used to evoke a feeling, establish a mood, create connections, spark revelation, enhance learning, and encourage action. It will also explore the responsibilities in designing for emotion: does emotion lead to new insights or cloud our thinking? Can too much emotional content run the risk of being manipulative?
