Abstract

There are various archive exhibitions held in art museums around the world. With the advent of Google, YouTube, digital cameras, and many other technologies, the way of recording and showing artwork has completely changed. In addition, archive exhibition related art has different characteristics compared to history museums and science museums. An art archive exhibition should have a close relationship with the displayed artwork, and it also has to be an artwork itself. It should satisfy the different expectations of visitors such as providing a new sensory experience or artistic knowledge. Also, the importance of archive sessions that can inform the context and meaning of the entire exhibition is growing because understanding the individual artwork is becoming more difficult as most of art has become more conceptualized. This article will present the process of a project our research team has been working on. This project composed an archive session for the robotic artwork from the “Robot Essay” exhibition that opened this past April at the Korea National Museum of Contemporary Art. Our archive session, inter-shelf, focused on how to increase the visitors’ engagement with the art exhibition by using rich and interactive experiences such as books and bookshelves as design motifs. The Inter-shelf consisted of four layers of information including a timeline, video, interactive installation, and real-time info-aesthetic visualization based on the visitors’ survey.
