The Graphical Expression of the Visitor Engagement Installation (VEI) Profile Revisited


In a previous issue of NORSIGD Info, we have presented the VEI profile that characterises installations in science centres and museums for the evaluation of the how engaging these exhibits are for visitors. The VEI profile is used by the stakeholders (such as curators and exhibition designers) to specify and evaluate characteristics of exhibits.
