Empathy: The Museum

Museums come in all shapes and sizes.  This one, which I found through @tombarrett ‘s “dialogical learning” e-mails, offers a look at Empathy, and it does so in a rather ingenious way.

We talk so much about empathy as the key to design thinking, but the concept is far deeper than the utilitarian implications spurred by its necessity to the DT mindset.  Anyway, this seems really interesting.

It’s also a phenomenal example of how an idea can take wing.
