As indicated by its title, this exhibition is offered in the form of an interactive art exhibition where viewers and artists will work together to create a complete piece of art. As it is denoted in its lexical meaning, the compound world, 'interactive,' requires mutual and two-way actions.
Interactive art belongs to the field of digital art in which art is expressed by combining fine art and the digital media technology. Unlike the conventional forms of art, interactive art uses different methods and tools to express art. Using digital media, viewers are induced to communicate with and participate in art forms. Each time, the outcome varies and is as diverse as the varying responses of viewers. In a sense, the exhibited artworks are still at the phase of work-in-process. They become a completed art piece only after viewers respond by touching and acting with them or making a sound. There is more to the conventional ways of appreciating art. It requires viewers' interaction to create a completed form of art. That is the most distinctive characteristic of interactive art.
As such, the most important thing of interactive art is the inter-communication between art and viewers. In that sense, this exhibition will offer a special opportunity for viewers to experience art using their whole body by touching and acting together with art, beyond the pleasure of visual images.
