The Interactivity

dancersThe 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 dancer and childof a given score or script. That interaction becomes even more critical in open, improvisatory forms as it influences the performance and creation of a piece. Arts, through contemplative staging of human interactions, have played a key role in centuries of exploration of human interactions.

Now, through projects like motione, the arts are exploring the emerging area of human-computer interaction. Such interactions are becoming mother and childmainstream 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 to the development of a human centric, physical-digital world.
