idea of computer enhanced interaction, a key element of the project,
was much harder to fully conceive, discuss
and evaluate. Human interaction has always been part of the performing
arts. Successful interaction among performers (musicians, dancers,
actors, conductors, etc) is key to achieving a good performance of
a given score or script. That interaction becomes even more critical
in open, improvisatory forms as it influences the performance and
of a piece. Arts, through contemplative staging of human interactions,
have played a key role in centuries of exploration of human interactions.
through projects like motione, the arts are exploring
the emerging area of human-computer interaction. Such interactions
mainstream in our lives and are shaping our future. Art projects
that place human-computer interaction in the context of poetic
exploration and furthering the human condition can contribute greatly
development of a human centric, physical-digital world.
