Perspective of the exhibition by Visitors 

The intentions of visiting the exhibition and taking part in it actively differs from visitors to visitors. Even though the targeted audience for the exhibition are movie lovers, yet there will be differences in thinking by the movie lovers. The differences in perspectives occurs due to two types of perspective held by the society, one is personal perspective and the other is social perspective. The former takes place when an individual will be influenced by its own personal feelings to decide whether to visit the exhibition or not (Falk and Dierking 2016). On the other hand, the social perspective is seen when the visitors will get influenced by the thinking and feelings of the society regarding the benefits of the exhibition. Moreover, the social perspective is further faced by positive feeling that is one that offers positive thoughts about an events and negative feeling which offers negative views about the event. Other than the perspectives there are other barriers too that might play an active part in influencing the visitors to visit the exhibition. These barriers are lack of proper information, lack of experience, time issue, past experiences, holding perception that exhibitions are boring, finding reading very boring, expensive and others (Serrell 2017). 
    There will also be visitors that just don not like visiting in any such kind of exhibition even though they will benefit from it and get to learn about new things in literature. On the other hand the perspective of literature lovers are very different from those of normal visitors. The visitors that holds a love for literature will visit the exhibition irrespective of whether they love reading or watching movies. Thus, to deal with such perspective differences it is necessary to learn about the preference of the target audience and the style of learning they are comfortable with. This will help to learn about the motivation and interest factors of the audience. 
Visitors’ Learning Interests
    Interest plays a most important point in the perspective differences in visitors that visit the museum or exhibition. According to (Chan and Yeoh 2010) one of the important interest of the visitors in visiting museums is their interest to learn something new from their visit. There are museum visitors that has seen stating that their visit to an exhibition was fruitful for them as they got to know various things and discussed about various questions they had regarding a particular thing. It si also seen that people from literature background holds a capacity of being thoughtful and imaginative with all what they see and learn. These people has an interest to extend everywhere they like to gain knowledge about some honorable literature. On the other hand interests of movie lovers that the exhibition targets might differ as the movie lovers are of various types and it is not necessary that they will only love the type of movies the Stephen wrote. So this might pose a challenges to the project that is being undertaken (Lanir et al. 2017).  This is because such differences becomes a challenge for the researcher to study the learning interest and characteristics of the literature lovers and movie lovers. 
    Other than this interest of the visitors can also be a challenge for the project’s success as there will be some visitors that will get influenced by their interest of just visiting an exhibition. This means that even if they are movie lovers or literature lovers, they might back off because they do not like the concept of exhibition to that extent. This might pose a challenge to the project operator to make their exhibition a success. Thus all these factors along with other factors makes it imperative for the exhibition personnel to analyze the activity and attitude of the visitors that visit the museum. According to (Cuomo et al. 2015) the most common challenges that this exhibition personal face is to accomplish two factors such as attraction power and holding power. This entirely depends on the interest of the visitors that might keep them intact. 
Visitors’ Learning Motivations
    Increasing the learning and knowing motivation of the visitors from the exhibition is another challenge that the personals of the exhibition face while designing and formulating the structure of the exhibition. This is because the structure of the exhibition will be the most important factor in motivating the visitors for the exhibition. A good structure will be the one that can help the visitors to explain each and every aspects of the exhibition easily. This will motivate them to visit in order to learn something interesting and in an easy way. On the other hand a poor and complex structure will demotivate them from visiting because they will find it difficult to understand anything in that situation (Falk 2006). Thus, it is necessary that the exhibition personal to keep in mind that the visitors understand and get interest in even the difficult thing that they are learning from the exhibition. 
Complex information if presented to the visitors in an innovative way, makes it enjoyable for them. This will in turn motivate them to learn more and visit there again and again. Moreover, once a visitor has visited the exhibition and enjoyed it, he/she will pass on the information to other their known people. This will create a motivation among others as well to learn from the exhibition. The motivation of learning something usually comes from the notion of offering an enjoyable way to known and visualize things and is essentially motivated by the emotional experience of the visitors. Motivation actually points on the emotion of the visitors and thus, it requires to influence that emotion in a positive way.  Further it is stated that another motivation aspects that play a role in motivating the visitors is their peers or loved ones. Motivation about visiting a place and to learn something rarely comes to someone by their own sake. It is their loved and closed ones that continue to persuade them to visits a place because of its beneficial effect (Chan and Yeoh 2010). This shows that most of the visitors that visit the exhibition is mainly not for themselves, it is to show their loved ones or others that they have also visited a place like them. Thus, the project will face various challenges from visitors’ motivational pattern as well. 

Understanding Abilities of the Visitors

Understanding abilities is the next main challenge that the exhibition face while organizing the events for the visitors and explain the main theme of the exhibition. Understanding of the customers differs from one another and thus, it is challenging to know the understanding level of each type of customers and design the learning system in that manner. This shows that not only the perspective of the visitors influences their decision of visiting the exhibition, it is also their understanding abilities that influence their learning decisions (Falk 2006). There are two factors that resemble the understand abilities of the visitors in the exhibition such as their characteristics or the way they understand and the other is the ability to discover the art of the literature in the exhibition. 
Characteristics of Understanding for the Visitors
    The visitors that visit the exhibition ae of various types and their way and ability of learning also differs in many ways. There are various characteristics that determine their learning and understanding capabilities such as visual, auditory, inductive, active, deductive and sequential. Each of these characteristics are different from one another and love needs the attention of the personals of the exhibition. There are some visitors that are comfortable in learning by visualizing the pictures or the matter of the story, while there are others that love to listen to what they wish to learn. However, sue to this characteristics of each type foe learning it becomes difficult for the learner to adjust themselves in any kind of learning environment. The exhibition that is going to be held is mostly a descriptive type exhibition in which the visitors can read the life and achievements of Stephen. Thus, it is challenging for them to attract visitors that love visual or audio type learning, however, these learners also get influenced by the people that love reading and have visited such exhibition before. Most of the exhibition for this purpose includes a mix type of learning system in which the learners can adjust themselves and learn the way they want it in a comfortable manner. This will help to attract more visitors for the exhibition. Visual learning is one of the popular known learning system and as the exhibition is targeting the movie lovers there should be some elements of visual learning. This will attract these movie lovers and they will get to learn some reading skills as well. Thus the global learners and lovers of literature and movies are not fit for just reading. They do need some dose of learning from the visual effect. 
Discovering learning in the Exhibition 
    Discovering learning in the exhibition is yet another factor that shows the learning and understanding abilities of the visitors. In most of the museum theory that has been pit forward it is seen that both the learning theory and knowledge theory is important in an educational exhibition. This address both the side of the picture that is what is to be learned from the exhibition and the way it is to be learned. Moreover it has also been stated that visitors in the exhibition has the capability of constructing the method in which they want to gain the knowledge. The exhibition here is also a type of constructive exhibition (Hein 1999). Thus, the visitors will have the freedom to choose the type of knowledge they want to gain at a time and the way they want to gain it. 
    Another important aspect of a constructive museum is seen where the visitors have the freedom and opportunity to make connection between their past knowledge and the knowledge they are getting form the exhibition. This makes them confident and complete about the idea and views they are holding about a thing. It is reflective from the type of learning constructive museum gives to its visitors that it helps the student to form a review of the concepts they already held form the, the visitors would have known Stephen and his works (Hooper-Greenhill 1999). However the exhibition is offering the literature lovers, book lovers and movie lovers the opportunity to look into his works and life in details. 

Narrative Space and Interpretations

After the challenges that is faced by the exhibition developers such as perception and understanding of the visitors, the next challenge they face is the narrative space of the exhibition. Narrative space is a details version or one of the belief of constructive museum. It shows the way the visitors will be able to construct a new thinking about a story or person from its past knowledge. After finding the ways to attract visitors in the exhibition, it is now challenging for the personals of the exhibition to find out ways in which they will hold back these visitors and keep on motivating them while they are analyzing every aspect of the exhibition. It is possible to attract the visitors on first chance by increasing their curiosity and interest to know new things. However, it is challenging and difficult to hold back that curiosity (Psarra 2009). Until and unless the exhibition becomes essentially interesting for the visitors it is not possible to hold back their attention for a longer time. Moreover, as the visitors will be lovers for such intellectual learning, their expectations will be more compared to students or the beginners. Thus, how to build a platform to maintain that curiosity among these learners is an interesting challenge to handle.  
Benefits of Narrative Space
    Before defining the narrative space itself it is first importance to realize the benefits that narrative space offers to the exhibition owners as well as to the audience that attends the exhibition. The way the narrative space of the exhibition is offered it is one of the most interesting way to present the exhibition that effects the mental and physical experiences of the audiences. Thus narrative space is that important for an exhibition as it helps in increasing its value by helping the audience learn in the most effective way. It is one of the best way in communicating with the visitors in the exhibition space (Dernie, 2006). Other benefits that it will offer to student audience is that it will present as the best medium of learning for them. Moreover as visitors will visit the exhibition with curiosity, thus, they will only desire to understand the actual meaning of the exhibition and understand its meaning clearly. This will further influence other visitors to take part in the occasion and absorb the knowledge of Stephen King. The narrative space forms that zone for the visitors such as the students, the elderlies and movie lovers in common in which they can absorb the true meaning of reading books and life of Stephen King in particular. As most of the audience will be movie lovers and has no connection with reading, creating a comfortable narrative space will make them easily grab the actual meaning of the exhibition (Paola, 2012). Along with the biography and the conceptual meaning of the exhibition, a narrative space adds to the strength. It is a guidance offered to the audience and acts as a tool to interact between the visitors and the environment. 
Narrative space
   Now it is time to define the way the narrative space needs to be designed so that it offers the best experience to the visitors and help them understand the major meaning of the space. According to Dernie, (2006), it is advised to avoid the use of linear way of arranging the narrative space as the visitors needs to understand each and every concept of Stephen King and create a wide prospect of rhythm and knowledge. It is recommended to use a complex narrative space as there are various types of plots that the reader will have to know about Stephen single and straight way of narration will not help them grab the actual meaning of the exhibition. There are various parts of life of Stephen King such as his birth, his life achievements, his work of fiction, horror and many other aspects that he presented through his work will be shown in the exhibition. Thus to understand each and every part in details a complex narration is logical. Thus every individual will get the chance to engage themselves with the work of Stephen king that they like. Moreover, complex structure will also help in narrating every plot of the stories such as the main themes, the minor plotlines and separate characteristics (Dernie, 2006). It is also an effective way to motivate the audience by rising an atmosphere of suspense to grab more details about the story and keep them motivated to move further. This is the actual role a narrative space tends to offer in an exhibition which requires to narrate a story to the audience.
