Change vs. Plastic
My first reaction to the Auschwitz article was why they would try to change or ‘update’ something that stands on its own. The exhibit might not be fancy or ‘modern’, but it tells a story of the Holocaust as it was. But when I read the article for the second time, my reaction changed. I understand that the people in power or the officials are not trying to change the story or the event, instead change the way the exhibit communicates with the public. They understand that they are dealing with whole new generations of audiences. The new generations they are dealing with may not have any sort of personal relations to the event, so they understand that they have to teach more than to show. I think this update is good because they are trying to teach and interact with the public according to the audiences’ needs.
The picture above shows a small change that happened according the change in society and its people. Now days, more people seem to carry around credit cards than cash or change. So this update from change to credit cards in parking meters is to better suit the public.
