Interface equates not to screen, interface is before or after the screen, i.e. projector, cinema, film - the physical layer, photo-sensitive emulsion on celluoid-, light?, lens etc etc.

Interface functions as an intermediate of something 'happening' simultaneously in real mind-space or in real body-space, where the mind/body dichotomie is that field of interaction wich is 'touched' by the agency of acting upon it, i.e. it's teleologics

Real space is 'still' conditional for the functioning of our sensory apparatus and as such imperative to out 'worldy' understanding

Mapping the (invisible) information layer to a visual or sensory field of experience
