Struba I would like to ask Dirk, although he doesn’t talk about his ‘easthetics” if he thinks there are certain elements in his work
Struba like interactivity for example that constitute an aesthetic for the viewer/ (or contributor?)
pueblo struba: interactivity as an aesthetic element?
Struba I think so (bu that’s my opinion, -> it contributes to the way of perceiving) what does he think about this
ok
pueblo Struba can you tell me more about yourself so I can personalise your question?
Struba I think perceiving has changed and is no longer only sensory but activates and makes you use your eyes, ears different beacause u can interact. that how I perceive

pueblo currently they are speaking of the way industralization and its processes affects our perception in daily life in unconscious ways
Struba I am writing my master thesis on one of Jodi s works, Untitled Game. and the creating of a different aesthetics because of new ways in which the new media are perceived/used
Struba I know Dirk doesn’t want to comment on this. but I want to ask anyways
Struba Maybe he says something interesting. you never know
Struba I am a shewink

sophie_apo33 There is maybe a contradiction between aesthetics and inter-action : the second one refers to an active “subject” related to a situation and other “subjects” while the the concept of aesthetics refers to contemplation... Developping interaction means going out of aesthetics and entering a regime of production of practice...
Struba I thin interaction in itself constructs so many possibilities it seems to be a shame to say it is a cliche.
