10 No satisfactory term has yet been proposed to describe the person who engages in interaction with an artwork. Roy Ascott has suggested the term 'user' but that carries implications that the artwork is at the service of that person, implying an imbalance in the relationship between person and artwork that is potentially misleading. 'Interactor' is used here for the sake of simplicity.
