Scripting Interactive Art Installations in Public Spaces
Traditional dynamic arts have much to offer and it is time to explore how the elements and techniques from stage performances could contribute to interaction design. We try to apply performance techniques and elements from dynamic art forms in the design process of interactive art installations for public spaces. Currently we try not to identify new technologies; instead we investigate how the installation would blossom when approached from a performance art perspective that essentially includes the users as well as a broader physical or social context. This paper introduces the role and function of script in the field of interactive art installation in public spaces. Script inspired from traditional dynamic art forms opens up new design opportunities. This paper discusses these opportunities, followed by an example how this approach can be applied in the design of a public art installation.
