Yesterday was Manifest and Susan Kwon, Stacy Stormes, Ramah Jihan, Nicolas Sagan and I showed our Interactive pieces. I've gotten a variety of responses over the last few days. Most people loved the work, including praise from faculty. However, few asked about the meaning of the work. I'm not sure if this is because most of the faculty had already seen it at critiques or if they were more interested in the actual functional interactivity. We discussed this in class as well: that many galleries would be more interested in the interactivity being evident than the aesthetic coherency of the work, while others will be interested in the work, with the interactive aspect just being a bonus.
