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.
