This activity was developed as a way for visitors to respond to emotionally charged issues presented by the artists in this exhibition. Visitors were invited to share how the work made them feel by leaving behind a colored bead that represented an emotion in a test tube at selected works of art. They were also able to see the reactions of others and view the work with a new perspective.
What visitors had to say:
"The ability to describe the emotions experienced when viewing different pieces is an amazing learning tool." - Kirsten
"What a cool way to experience art and get a 6 year old to actually look at and think about what it means to him." - Jen
"A+ for interactivity and A+ for experiencing art communally by seeing how others react." - Patricia
"Such a cool way to make the viewer really interact with and think about how the piece affects them, on an emotional level." - Ivan
"My 3 yr old was able to identify work that made her angry, grumpy, sad, lovely, happy etc. She was so...engaged." - Sarah
