Lights on... Cultural heritage and museums!
AbstractCommunicating is one of the most complex, challenging and interesting phenomena of human activity, which involves discovering the Other and the technological inventions that have allowed Man to reach further and faster. This is the theme of the Transport and Communications Museum’s long term exhibition: COMMUNICATE, opened in December 2012 - a challenge in constant evolution. This exhibition is based on an anthropological concept of Communication and consists of a path that challenges visitors to experiment and reflect upon the forms of communication that Man established to interact with others and with his surroundings. Light is a central concern not only in the exhibition space but especially in its contents: .Senses Alert: sight is the perception of the physical surroundings through the light they emit or reflect. .Step into the light: interactive project where you use your body, voice and senses as a means of communication, combine them with technology and make it a single living, visual and musical instrument. .The Message: it can take many forms and is omnipresent, especially in today’s digitised world. The Message acquires meaning in a relationship and requires a code, a context, a medium. The way it spreads and circulates often receives powerful injunctions of technique, art and creativity. The codes broaden the universe of communication and facilitate human interaction: ColorADD (for people incapable of distinguishing colours); Morse (messages transmitted through sound, light or visual signals); Braille (system of reading and writing through touch for blind people); Sign Language (communication using hand movements, facial expression and body language)... .Messengers: the discovery that the chemical element selenium could transform light energy into electric pulses, meant that images could be transmitted through an electric current: TV became a powerful medium, penetrating homes transmitting information, ideas and ideals.
