Everything You Must Know About Interactive Installation Art

Have you ever heard of the “interactive Installation”? What’s the first thing that strikes your mind when you hear the word “interactive art installation”? There have been a lot of controversies about how can interactive installation outperforms the traditional art form. Before we discuss what makes interactive art stand out, let’s have a quick look at the meaning of this art form.

What is the Interactive Installation?

As the name implies, interactive art installation involves artwork and human interaction. It not only lets the audience interact with the specific artwork but be the part of the same by responding to the specific situation they are put through by the artist. The best part about these artworks is they allow the audience to view the work and shape it according to them.

Today, the main goal of every interactive artist is to use the latest technological tools to design the best possible media that catches the attention of the audience. Unlike static artwork, the purpose of the interactive installation is to allow the audience to respond to the particular art the way they want. It is an audience-led approach, where the participation of the viewers is a must.

The Open-ended Art Form

Sometimes, the viewers are expected to participate in the final artwork piece. Mostly, the interactive art installation invites people to get involved with the artwork by applying the missing piece into the already designed framework. This makes the interactive installation an open-ended art form where viewers get to take the final action according to their preference and interest.

On some occasions, the interactive installation might display the movie characters. However, they are beyond any films as they are based on the real audience and quick reactions.

How to determine if the Installation is Interactive or Autonomous?

Art is not considered art until the audience reacts to it. Today, we get to see a lot of art types that fall into the category of interactive installations. However, it is way too challenging to determine if the art is interactive or autonomous. This confusion increases when the artists come up with the artwork that is already in the finished form but is still utilized by viewers.

Interactive art can be defined as the artwork that not only looks aesthetically appealing and engaging, but it interacts with the real audience and invites their interference. The artist, using their creative mind and skillset, comes up with an artwork that puts the audience through a certain situation. This brings interaction as such artworks are incomplete without the final piece is installed (which is, the viewer’s reaction).

The Immersive, Transcendental Experience of AudioVisual Installation

Sound carries a rhythm of emotions, feelings. Our sensory organs distill the noise to have a refined experience of each of the layers in an independent form. Sound as an artistic or creative expression spent a long time under the radar before making its way to the mainstream culture. The emergence of sound art in the first phase and phenomenal popularity in the second highlights the sacred, mystical sense associated with it. With sound art, we make our own experience. The liberty to create how we feel is an immersive experience. It lifts us off the plain and transforms the surroundings. The audiovisual installation art creates a collective experience with sculpture and sound functioning at different levels. The wholesome appeal or experience asks for attention to focus on the impact it has on mind and body.

AudioVisual Installation Art Reflects on the Evolutionary Aspect of Growth

Audio video installation art contemplates upon the association of object and sounds like two different bodies forming a single identity with each holding an essence considered essential for individual growth and at the same time lifting the other of its social image. It breaks to create a new form which resonates or strikes with its originating principles.

Experience Nature Through Different Types of Art Styles

Art flows like a running stream carrying different healing and prosperous properties. There are different types: Public art, new media art, kinetic sculptures, interactive art, light art, and the burning man art.

There’s a common thread among them. User participation is the whole basis of experiment or art form in the first place. A user’s participation happens at different levels. In an interactive atmosphere, user participation and user-experience run at a parallel level. In other art styles, the user experiences the whole activity standing outside or moving along with the flow the senses float.

Each art style narrates the reality through a different lens. The creative expression of both the creator and the audience creates a common destiny. The conflict that the sculpture discusses often works as a solution to the earlier conflict or the purpose of developing it.

Art’s message is to bring a purpose to life. Our inherent ability to imagine things is the basis of different types of art styles in the world. Each style is either a confirmation of the established rules or defiance to leave one’s personal stamp on the dunes of time.
