“Be careful with the audio guide at Bowie exhibition.”
Reviewed 2 April 2013
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Bowie exhibit, but there’s one thing which spoils it. When the rooms are full, you can’t get close enough to the exhibits for the right audio to kick in, which means if you’re looking at Space Oddity, you’re still getting ‘Underneath the Arches’ from the Gilbert and George piece on the way in! It’s hugely annoying as you’re jostling for position, trying to get into the right catchment area for the right audio.
I appreciate that this probably works perfectly with a few people, but with a few hundred it doesn’t – and you start wondering whether what you’re hearing IS what you should be hearing! And you become aware of other people walking about moving their heads like Balinese dancers trying to get their heads into the right space, as it were.
I think a simple ‘Press 1’ might not be as sexy, but it works!
