Effects of immediacy on the perception of interactive art
MetadataShow full item record
This study examined how the observed immediacy of an interactive artwork affects the perception of the art, and how participants' engagement impacts the personal perception of time. A new projected artwork was created by the author that could randomly assign participants different interactive latency times. The design of the installation from a conceptual and technical viewpoint is discussed with reference to the desired outcomes from a pragmatic and phenomenological standpoint. Beyond the hypothesis, other results that looked at the need for a high level of perceptive processing produced a number of behavioral patterns that maybe of additional interest to other media artists.
