Ethnographic research

"Logic will get you from A to B.

Imagination will take you everywhere"

Ethnographic research is a very unique form of research.  

 

An ethnographic researcher tries to understand reality,

and that by getting into the shoes of others and understanding what moves those others. Ethnographic research is always about the perspective of the researched.

 

In this case we do ethnographic object research. In order to really put yourself in the shoes of an object and to stimulate the imagination of students, we opt for the working method: the object interview. What are the experiences and perceptions of the object in the museum? What interaction takes place with the public?

Example Object Interview

The students ask questions to the object and get to know its experience

What makes you happy?

What would you like to tell the audience?

How do you experience the other objects around you?

What does a day look like for you?

How do you feel when people look at you?
