I like looking at art in museums. But there are those empty moments, questions and doubts as you walk past a lonely museum workshop room… What would it take for visitors to become more engaged? What would it take for an art museum to be more inclusive, social and playful?

There’s an art museum in Stockholm (or was it Munich?) that has installed a special system: Step too close to a painting and you will hear a soft warning sound, nudging you to take a step back. As you stroll through the display rooms you’ll hear a steady stream of these tones sounding from all around the museum… but what if you could get that up and close to an art piece?
