Abstract:This report discusses the findings and conclusions derived from the research conducted to design an interactive installation that keeps visitors engaged at the MuseumFabriek. The study addresses various sub-questions related to design aspects, suitable installation, content, recommendation system design, the impact of recommendations on visitor experience, and a revised design iteration. The research emphasizes the importance of understanding the target audience and highlights the importance of enabling visitors to explore freely, a collaborative multi-user design, ensuring user-friendly and various other practical requirements. For the content, 22 interviews were analyzed and categorized into four groups relevant to the firework disaster: housing, businesses, stories, and help. These categories, along with a timeline, are used in the installation to present the content cohesively. Additionally, a non-personalized recommender system is implemented to enhance content connectivity and tested in an A/B test. However, due to limited data, the impact of this recommendation system on visitor experience couldn't be conclusively determined. Based on the testing results and literature, a revised iteration of the installation is proposed. Improvements are made to the attention-grabbing aspects, the videos, especially their length, as well as enhancing glanceability to increase user engagement.
