Summary "Act/React: Interactive Installation Art makes its world premiere at the Milwaukee Art Museum from October 4, 2008, through January 11, 2009. Showcasing a growing body of contemporary art that is visitor-dependent - without the use of specific interfaces like keyboards or touchscreens - this exhibition of motion-driven installation art empowers visitors to exercise their creativity and act on their curiosity. Act/React features the work of six pioneers of responsive art (including an Academy Award winning Jurassic Park special effects designer) in the Museum's famous Calatrava-designed galleries." "The Act/React DVD/catalogue, coproduced by the Milwaukee Art Museum and ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art, documents this first totally interactive art exhibition. The catalogue includes an introduction by Joseph D. Ketner II, coordinating curator, and illustrated essays by George Fifield on the history of interactive art and by Judith S. Donath on the social ramifications of interactivity."--BOOK JACKET.
