The participatory exhibition TING invites visitors to explore and discuss the complex relationships between technology and democracy. The centerpiece of the exhibition is the grand amphitheater-like space of the TING that is formed by the interactive TING table and shelf (25x5m) that displays 100 objects from the museum’s permanent collection. Visitors explore the shelf with the interactive tablets or by placing a basic wooden block, a haptic tool, on the table to trigger digital interactions.
