An experiment in interactive design and a bold reimaging of the museum exhibition

This catalogue pioneers a new approach to the art museum exhibition, using the power of design to explore how we experience the world through our varied senses. Six international design teams have collaborated with experts in neuroscience and cognitive, motor, and sensory issues to create site-specific, immersive, and participatory environments—one of which is the publication itself. These revolutionary interpretations across various media will foster research intended to push our understanding of sensory perception and encourage new ways of conceiving, installing, and experiencing exhibitions. Designed by Laurie Haycock Makela, a leader in experimental graphic design, the book plays with the multiple meanings of the word “speechless,” exploring the evolution of the project, documenting the installations, and offering portraits of the creative individuals who defined this extraordinary undertaking. Topics range from personal connections to issues of inclusion, diversity, accessibility, and empathy.
Sarah Schleuning is the Margot B. Perot Senior Curator of Decorative Arts and Design and interim chief curator at the Dallas Museum of Art.
