M. Fernandez.

This seminar will examine notions of interactivity, immersion, and responsiveness in works of art and architecture from the 1950s to present. Select historically significant works in traditional media, telematics, machine sculpture, interactive, and digital installation will be explored as well as more recent genres of artistic practice including interactive cinema, locative media, and video games. Theorizations of interactivity, addressing narrativity, performativity, embodiment, “liveliness” and the sensual and affective engagement of the user with the work will be discussed, as will the relation of art and surveillance, and the relation of “high art” interactivity with popular techno-cultural forms. The relevance of these topics to architecture will be a recurrent theme.
