Dear List,

Thanks Melissa and Kelsey - this looks really useful - in particular,  
the way that you break down "who can potentially be involved", and  
whether this is is "process" or "outcome".  As we discussed on the list  
a while ago in relation to Bourriaud's 'Relational Aesthetics', some of  
the things that those from fine art seem to find particularly  
problematic is in identifying who exactly is relating to what, whether  
participation is in making or reading, and of course the huge  
challenges to artistic 'authorship' that this entails.

I see that your references come from design and architecture fields,  
and some posts so far on this theme have referred to exhibition design,  
and to architectures (see Verina Gfader's post). I think that this will  
come up at the Urban Screens conference too, and I'll be posting from  
there. Does the List think that the knowledge or methods from  
architecture and design are equally important?

So, I have a particular question  related to your identification of  
"timing" as an important factor in interaction - could you say a bit  
more about timing? I'm asking because I think that this is a particular  
issue for video curators moving into new media art - how the timing is  
different - Caroline Langill also mentioned factors of time in her  
comments on 'e-art' at the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal.

Thanks again, it's very interesting work!

yours,

Beryl
