Interactive Art: Digital Entities and the Audience Experience
October-December 2008 (vol. 15 no. 4)
pp. 4-7
Kathy Cleland, Digital Cultures Program, University of Sydney
Kathy Cleland looks at innovative ways that artists are using vision, motion, and other sensing technologies to trigger autonomous actions and behaviors to enable lifelike, lively, and unpredictable interactions for audiences. She sees the responsive behavior of technology in these works as playing with desires to anthropomorphize machines and engage them emotionally.
