Brainstorming sketches and notes
I began by conducting very general research on the BVI and the issues they face in order to figure out what direction I wanted to go in for the project. After gaining a solid base of knowledge, I decided to pick the High Museum of Art as my location because it is a place I enjoy visiting.
I spent time researching accessibility practices in museums around the world, and common barriers the BVI were facing in museums. Then, I conducted an interview with the High Museum’s accessibility department via email. From this interview, I discovered that the High did not offer any assistive technologies for indoor navigation. From there, I began researching potential solutions for my hypothesis.
