I hope that our project would be relevant to anyone walking into the museum. I imagine people visiting the museum are expecting to see something professional, academic, and relevant to the displays. Because we are talking about death, people would most likely be expecting it to be somewhat depressing. I would like our project to take a lighter look at death while retaining an overall academic and respectful tone. I think our project will relate to the audience by discussing a topic that everyone has experience with and many people are interested in. The lighter tone will help the topic be appealing to people and perhaps be more entertaining as well. I hope to make my section of the project bring understanding about an unusual western tradition that people may not have known about before. One of the main subjects I’m focusing on is death masks, which might seem like an unusual or even morbid practice today. I want our project to help people see certain traditions and rituals in a different way and to broaden their understanding of all our topics. People should walk away with not only a deeper understanding of our topics, but also empathy for beliefs and customs different from their own. Even though some of the customs could seem unusual to outsiders, if we are careful in our research and explanation it will help visitors relate to other cultures are practices of a different time period.
