Museum Studies Spatial Narrative

Spatial Narrative - Museum Studies

exhibitions as a spatial narrative
how could I use technology to open source this spatial narrative in LAHSP?
it got its own historical stories, archeology sites, existing stories, there r 2 approaches
1. as open work: the story of LAHSP can start from any place? (but it's still a linear narrative story without real participation, users r still users, passive learners, i need sth abt interactive, engaging design, it shdn't be in the museum, where are those things? public arts? but the term art itself implied the concept of ailienation, also i need locative art studies)
2. open source: tell the ppl how to write their own digital stories based on the existing historical / physical stories - but how??

locative media, public media, participatory exhibition or art? interactive media? interactive design?

interface communication? locative communication?
