Interactive Art Reflection - Carl Ostlund

2) What is the relationship between our senses and the interface

We have mental maps for nearly all of our experiences, at least those that are familiar. I believe the greatest potential for interactivity is for us to challenge and allow our mental maps to evolve. Interaction is a word that is so broad and vague, that it can hypothetically be applied to anything in the world. With modern physics we are learning about fractals, string theory, and the deep energy flows that influence the lives of us and all organisms. Humans are extremely complex and we can interact with our environment in infinite ways, if the opportunities and mental maps are available.
