摘要

As mobile technologies are applied to perform the fluid mobility of the social, museum audio guides facilitate the complex interaction among material culture, mobility, and society. Based on actor-network theory, this study considered the user of audio guides to be both a human and a nonhuman hybrid assembly. I examined the process of how an audio guide combines narrated text with a temporal rhythm to transform the museum as a spatial 'exhibitionary complex'. Thus, audio guides introduce a new speed politics in museum visiting. Finally, I analyzed the cultural, economic, and social capital of users employing audio guides as a mobile technology. This research was based on the observation and in-depth interviews of visitors to the "Splendour of the Baroque and Beyond" exhibition at the National Palace Museum in Taipei between October 2007 and February 2008.
