Main lessons learned

Inspiration

The exhibition built on experiences from participatory exhibitions at the Museum of Work in Norrköping and at the Not Quite artist collective. During these exhibitions we had tested custom made versions of the Bordr iPhone app on interactive iPads in the exhibition halls. With great results. Inspired by artistic border exploration such as the Vandring – Vittring project, the Project Borders Vision took experimentation to a new level, and tested a whole range of new techniques to include the audience to tell their own stories.
