The Transparent Act: Transparency, Cognition and Interactivity:
Toward a New Aesthetics of Interactive Media Art
Dr Brigitta Zics

This book presents an artist’s intimate encounter of art by philosophising her practice from within the creative process. It explores the radical shift that technology has brought to the role of spectatorship and proposes how, through the lens of human cognition, we may achieve a better understanding of interactivity within art. The notion of Transparent Act synopsises multidisciplinary accounts and offers an experience-centred contribution to human-computer relationships and their aesthetics. The book focusses on the recent emerging practices of art as research and provides an inside-out viewpoint. This book is intended for practicing artists as well as for theorists and curators to gain new perspectives of how interactive art may be practiced, presented, critiqued and engaged with. It includes a number of presented concepts developed by the author in collaboration with designer Imre Lepsényi. More information:
