Awareness project (lip reading): Context

My original idea was to create an interactive experience for a museum space, making the experience individual to each person. After a long development process, I decided to create a space which is about awareness of lip reading and the importance of making sure people can see your lips.

 

Within the space the participant is trying to listen to a story, but the speaker keeps turning away; which in turn means the audio cuts out. Then the participant has to move position to recover the sound. This is to show the frustration people with hearing difficulties have to endure when trying to lip read.

 

The space was not specifically aimed at a particular audience, but hopefully the engagement is simple enough for a large audience of people to understand and use easily.
