Re: [-empyre-] networked_performance
I just want to briefly tell about one of the issues I've approached in
my own work and would like to hear if anyone has any thoughts on this. I
think the basic premise in these networked performances is physical
interaction, i.e. not directly through the computer (that's what makes
them "performances"). But most of them seem to involve voluntary actions
from a certain public. I'm more interested in the idea of involuntary
interaction. Using common actions without the participants necessarily
being aware that they're interacting with a work of art or in a way that
they don't have actual control over how they interact (for instance, by
turning a work environment into an interactive space).
I haven't really formed any deep concepts around this (besides feeling
that this is, in a way, a very "pure" form of interaction), so I would
be interested in hearing Helen's and others ideas on this.
