Twitter reviews


Level 4 Visual Communications students visited our current exhibition, Is that plastic?, as part of their Introduction to Visual Thinking.

Their brief asked them to think about the exhibition in the following ways :

Research terms

  • Define the word Skeuomorph
  • What is the etymology of the word skeuomorph?
  • What is a Metaphor?

Visit the Skeuomorphs exhibition in MoDiP
  • Take time to view the entire exhibition.
  • Which is your favourite object and why?
  • If what is on display is a careful selection of objects, what does that tell you about the collection as a whole?
  • Write a tweet review of the exhibition.

The idea of a Twitter review intrigued me. I can’t imagine trying to sum up an exhibition and how I feel about it in just 140 characters. It does sound like a brilliant challenge though.
