Public image unlimited : the transformative affects of interactive public screens

31 Oct 2013

Audience interaction with art works, especially in public environments, encourages, is even premised upon, an apprehension of the work where agency is (at least) two-fold and two-way. Interactivity proposes an engagement with a situation that is disruptive of the art work and the relations around it - including those who encounter it and those who may observe such encounters. This paper discusses two interactive projection works, from 1980 and 2001, that each explores how interactive art works in public spaces can be distinctive in reconfiguring the relationships between the key agents - artist, place, viewer and observer.
