Abstract [sv]

Att besöka museum är ett populärt nöje, och ett sätt att erhålla ny kunskap. Tidigare studier har visat på positiva resultat av att öka meningsfullheten av besöken genom användning av teknologi. Denna forskning introducerade en design som framtagits genom deltagande design. Forskningen visar på möjligheten att förstärka upplevelsen av museibesöket genom digitalt gåvo-givande beteende. Deltagarna besöker ett museum som ett par, där den ena parten agerar gåvogivare och den andra mottagare. Under besöket ritar deltagarna sketcher, hittar objekt, svarar på frågor angående utställningsföremålen och samlar därigenom ledtrådar för att avkryptera gåvan. Denna forskning förklarar hur gåvo-givande beteende bidrar till den sociala upplevelsen mellan romantiska par och hur denna bidrar till upplevelsen av museibesöket. Resultatet erbjuder möjligheter för vidare forskning om hur nära förhållanden påverkar meningsfulla upplevelser.

Abstract [en]

Museums are popular among people to relax and obtain knowledge. Prior studies showed great efforts on increasing meaningfulness of the museum tour with the support of technology. This research introduces a design created through participatory design practice. The interaction presents its potential of enhancing the museum visiting experience for visitors in intimate relationships through digital gift- giving behavior. Participants visit the museum as couples, with one party acting as the gift giver and the other as the gift receiver. During the visit, participants draw sketches, find objects, answer questions related to the objects and collect the clues to decrypt the given gift. This research explains how gift- giving behavior enhances the social experience between the intimate couple and how social interaction between intimate couple enhances the museum visiting experience. This research suggests the opportunity for research on the effect of the close relationship on meaningful experiences.
