Interaction Design book
With the replacement of mass consumption by mass production of cultural objects by users and the emergence of the “implied producer,” interaction design might be seen as a way to appreciate and practice complexity. The modalities involved in participation in real-time artistic scenarios, such as, but certainly not limited to, “installations” are both performative and experiential, which increases focus on the act of participation itself. Interaction designs framing such investigations into complexity are collaborative practices “facilitating social and communicative processes” and navigating all the pitfalls inherent in the commercialization of the convergent media; it is “a performance” of complex actions; thus, “culture might be considered a complex artifact of social feedback”. The experimentalism is reflected in “collaborative media,” something that “is different from designing other forms of digital things.” Experimentalism is also presented in artistic practices, such as performative and tangible interaction.
