Interactivity in art

The sub theme of my project is interactivity which has led me to consider whether interactivity is important in art or not.

When you think of a piece of art, most people think of a painting in a gallery which is generally there to be viewed. But with modern day advances in technology more and more people want to interact with the things around them, ofrench known as being a prosumer – a combination of being a consumer (viewer of the product) and a producer (maker of the product) – and I think interactivity in art allows people to be prosumers and gives more enjoyment as it promotes active participation rather than passive viewing.

personally I feel that art being interactive creates more enjoyment and engagement as there is more participation with the piece and therefore it’s more likely to be both enjoyed and remembered which works well for both the viewer and the creator of the art piece.
