|Does carbonite shape you?|
From the website: "Star Wars Identities looks at the Star Wars films--and what makes someone who they are--through the lens of the sciences of identity. This includes genetics, neuropsychology, health sciences, and psychology."
|Who will you be?|
Scattered among the displays are "learning center". If you stand near enough the marked circle on the floor your headset will play you the audio that matches the video. The centers talked about what forces could shape a person. The ten centers each had a theme and touched upon aspects such as species, parents, and friends. Anakin and Luke's pasts were compared and contrasted to see what might have happened to them to make them turn out like they did.

Over all I enjoyed the displays but not the learning aspect. Having to stand in a little huddle with strangers listening to a dryly spoken and long piece about science did not appeal to me. Normally I am interested in learning about why people do what they do so that's a bit off for me. I guess that might be a negative force that shaped my opinion...
Have you visited this exhibit in its travels? Or perhaps you've visited another? I'd love to hear from you!
