Abstract

This paper draws on post-phenomenological philosophy of technology and contemporary discourse on interactive art in order to shed light on the role of technological mediation in electronic art, i.e., the flows of audience’s experiences into and through the artworks, and, the role of technology in facilitating these flows. The analysis results in a distinction between “interactive” and “mediating” art on the one hand, and “mediation as a tool” and “mediation as an end itself” on the other.
