Finally we have to speak about the objects – the major components of any exhibition. No doubt, they are the protagonists. We discuss them at the end of the chapter only because we wanted to call attention to the (often disregarded) other components of the visitor experience. The quality, number and arrangement of the objects are always suited to the type of the exhibition and the available space.
Our pictorial examples below illustrate some communication issues about the placement of objects and surrounding installations. As this book is not about creating exhibitions, we do not go into details about this topic, but suggest instead a list of books in the “„Further Reading” section for a detailed rendering consideration of the issues about the arrangement of objects at in an exhibition instead.
