Reading response 5 – Making Interactive Art: Set the Stage, Then Shut Up and Listen

The ideas presented in this blog post make a lot of sense to me, but they are also difficult for me to get used to. Reading the explanation the blog post gave about the importance of looking at interactive art as a performance, rather than a finished painting was very interesting to me, because as a visual artist, that’s how I’ve been looking at it, and trying to explain the concept and inspiration behind my work the same way I would have with one of my paintings. I think having read this, I’ll try to keep reminding myself to not explain myself or my work, and instead just present it and let the audience explore and interpret it.
