Skype Meetings – Term 2

08/01/2019 – Interaction in Art

Discussion on interaction in art focusing on Control, Immersion, Interface, Narrative and Play.

in a very broad sense here is a quote from Duchamp… what do you think of this?

‘All in all, the creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.’ Marcel Duchamp, April 1957

this quote is specifically about curating but i think it is very useful for us…

… best way to curate — to produce, present, disseminate, distribute, know, explain, historicise — a work of art is to know its characteristics and its behaviours, rather than imposing a theory on the art Beryl Graham & Sarah Cook (Rethinking Curating, 2010 p.303)

15/01/2019 – Interaction in Art

Continuing discussion on interaction in art focussing on Control, Immersion, Interface, Narrative and Play.

here is a taxonomy of play called a ‘pleasure framework’ by one researcher – very interesting in relation to art… Costello, B., 2007. A pleasure framework. Leonardo,40 (4), 370–371.

if you remember we started with this quote:

… best way to curate — to produce, present, disseminate, distribute, know, explain, historicise — a work of art is to know its characteristics and its behaviours, rather than imposing a theory on the art Beryl Graham & Sarah Cook (Rethinking Curating, 2010 p.303)

it is their concept of behaviours that I think is so interesting and potentially liberating for us as artists and one final quote — not so much about interaction but more about exploring things beyond our own experience…

”By changing space, by leaving the space of one’s usual sensibilities, one enters into communication with a space that is psychically innovating. … For we do not change place, we change our nature.” Gaston Bachelard The Poetics of Space, 1964
