This is a blog to cover my investigations into my audiences
It would be really useful to examine these things in detail. At what height were cabinets, what materials were used to support the objects, how were fixings done? etc etc Then, how do you think the audience is led to think about these things? Is there such a thing as a 'museum gaze'? What would Foucault have to say about the Royal Armories? One thing you may also want to consider is the use of glass. Francis Bacon always insisted that his work be framed under glass. This means that when you look at his work you are always partly reflected in it. In this way you become part of the experience. Is this a similar issue when looking into museum cases?
