Transforming Mirrors : Models of Interaction
Contents / Intro / Art Context / Models / Navigation / Media / Mirrors / Automata / Conclusion
There are a number of distinct models that can be used to represent the interaction between an artwork and an interactor. I will examine four models that I find particularly useful. The artwork can be conceived of as a navigable structure or world, a creative medium in its own right, a transforming mirror, or an automaton. While each interactive work can be profitably examined in the light of several of these models, each model offers a unique perspective on the issues involved in interaction.
