Interaction Models for Audience-Artwork Interaction: Current State and Future Directions

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering book series (LNICST,volume 101)

Abstract

Interactive art is of great relevance to the arts, sciences and technology alike. A common field of interest among researchers of different disciplines, practising artists and art institutes is the interaction between audience and artwork. This paper reviews existing research concerning interaction in interactive art and discusses its applicability for describing and classifying audience-artwork interaction. In pointing out possible future directions, we identify a need for models describing the relation between the audience’s and artwork’s actions and reactions as well as the necessity for future research looking at interaction as a continuous bi-directional process between work and audience.
