Abstract

Research of human-computer interaction in exhibition design previously focuses more on how technologies could be used to create splendid effect or impressive experience [1], rather than to interwoven technology with metaphoric, intuitive and narrative content. While in socio-cultural exhibition, the communication of meaning and knowledge itself is more emphasized. Besides, emotional engagement, which could evoke memory, feelings and cognition, could be an important method for HCI in exhibition design. However, less study has explored this area. In this article, the potentials of emotional engagement for HCI in exhibition design are outlined through a project in Shek Kip Mei district in Hong Kong. The project have three stages: documentation, abstraction and conceptualization. It represents one possible flow that could generate emotional engagement from the socio-cultural contents for visitors. The experience gained from this project could facilitate designers, planners, museum curators and academic researchers in creating emotional engaged exhibition.
