Abstract:

  • Due to limited exhibition spaces, art has been mainly consumed with specific documentation formats. Books or catalogs were key media to experience painting and sculpture. Later on, in addition to print media, video became a major platform to document installation art and performance art. However, documentation techniques of those formats do not fit for archiving interactive art due to its multifaceted properties including emerging technologies, audiences’ participation, and spatiotemporal environments. This paper stresses that current documentation for interactive art needs an interlocked archiving system including conceptual, technological, and phenomenological approaches.
