Co-curated by Jane Tingley, professor in the Department of Fine Arts, INTERACTION is an exhibition that explores how Canadian artists and designers are engaging the public through interactivity. The presented works are both material art objects as well as interactive systems that are designed to be realized by an active viewer, one that co-creates, participates, and engages rather than passively consuming media.
