The (Inter)national (Inter)face of (Inter)action  a look at some of the technologically interactive works at the 52nd International Venice Biennale

Art objects have since time immemorial presented a certain degree of interactivity to a visiting audience, walking around a sculpture or looking at a painting from various vantage points being the commonest occurrences within galleries and museums. A visitor’

s experience to a static work of art is therefore to a large extent dependent on the physical circumstances presented by the work and its surroundings, by such attributes as the walking space around a sculpture or the colour of a wall behind a painting and numerous others. Opportunities for artwork-visitor interaction increase exponentially not only when one endows the art object with the ability to affect the audience or vice-versa, but also when the work itself is able to do both and influence itself through its own physical and virtual state of being.
