Abstract

Today the concept of art is studied in the term of aesthetic object. On the one hand, it is noticed that the aesthetic object has changed its form from material into interpretive and semantic entity. On the other hand, the aesthetic experience is shifting its site to the center of aesthetic object. Contemporary computer-based media art works are composed of physical bodies such as computer CPU, monitor, projector, camera and speaker including technologies of computer vision, computer graphics, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, etc. In particular, interactive art not only embodies characteristics of already changed aesthetic object, but also reveals contexts of returning the problem of aesthetic object into the aesthetic perception for the reconsideration. Therefore interactive art is the triggering and motivating point to discuss new aesthetic object in terms of art and science.
