If there were ways to encourage adults to reawaken their childlike curiosity and wonder about the world, what kind of experience would it be?
Wonder Corner is a participatory installation that invites adults into a private and safe space to wonder about the world. It is a place where no one can see or hear them and they can ask anything they want.
Seymour Papert said, “Learning, especially today … is about putting one’s own words to the world, or finding one’s own voice, and exchanging our ideas with others.”
Research shows that compared to children adults are less likely to seek out help, share and ask questions about things they don’t know. Somewhere along the way of growing up, we lose the openness of our former curiosity. We think we’re supposed to have all the answers and we become embarrassed about what we don’t know
Wonder Corner is an invitation to leave that shame behind.
