Resonant field: a critical analysis of user interface design in digital media
This thesis analyzes user interface design process in digital media. New methodologies, new perceptions, new approaches and new technologies help unfolding new understandings within this paradigm. Within the shifting nature and definition of art and design, a work has become something that gains value and importance as the audience of such works are transformed into users or participants. The core of this thesis is on the user experience through the interaction of the user/participant with the interface designed by the artist/designer. It probes into the levels of interaction and user interface design through analysis of works from the domain and a designed interactive installation.
