Title: From Participation to Interaction : Toward the Origins of Interactive Art - published In: Clicking In. Hot Links To A Digital Culture
Authors: Dinkla, Söke
Keywords: Interactive Art
Media Theory
Issue Date: 1996
Publisher: Bay Press, edited by Lynn Hershman Leeson
Abstract: In “From Participation to Interaction”, Soke Dinkla discusses the transition of art from past exhibits where viewers were given a chance to participate in the piece, such as Max Ernst’s choice to leave an ax next to one of his works, to today’s art where viewers interact with and become part of the exhibit itself, such as Rauschenberg’s Soundings. The article supports its claims by breaking down a few examples of interactive installations where this phenomenon occurs.
Description: “From Participation to Interaction” written by Soke Dinkla is a historical piece that describes the chain of events that lead to interactive art through the use of advancing technology. Dinkla speaks about the development from 1996 but talks about art movements, theories, and artists that come from as far back as 1913. Here, the manifesto titled, Variety Theatre of 1913 suggested physical involvement of the audience in theater.
