In designing the interactive stations, the museum had to carefully choose a technique from each photographer that would inspire visitors to make their own works based on the originals. "We don't want to make it impossible," says Susan Anne Timberlake, senior exhibition developer, in an interview with American Photo. "The Berenice Abbott bouncing ball is a good example. It's still challenging to get an image that looks like hers. There are issues of timing and sometimes the ball doesn't bounce the right way. We've seen people trying it again and again and experimenting with the timing. They have a goal in mind of what they want the picture to look like and they are making repeated efforts to create that. In that regard, it's been a success."
