Fellow MALer Ryan made something really, AMAZINGLY cool. He made a Malaysian Dragon out of his dinner. If you haven’t already read his article, go check it out.
In his article, Ryan mentions a concept (that he made up) called The Museum Effect:
The Museum Effect is how the dim lighting, glass cases, Latin subscript, dry copy, hushed tones and felt ropes all combine to give an aura of truth and infallibility. The display style for artifacts of historical worth has become so universally accepted that one can co-opt those same rules to create a compelling lie.
Imagine a museum that takes this concept and just runs with it. Cases filled with imaginary beasts. Ancient maps of fabled lands. Designs for machines that cannot exist, but do. Evolutionary diagrams and fossils of alien species. An Impossible Museum.
If you were the curator for The Impossible Museum, what would you have on display?
