Abstract or Description

This paper reports on the evaluation of WeCurate, a synchronised image viewer that supports discussions of digital images of cultural artefacts. The evaluation was conducted at a London museum while it was installed as a multiuser interactive. The results from the trial reflected the dynamics and practices of social groups visiting museums, and revealed aspects of social interaction which should be considered when developing interactives intended to support collaboration.
