I couldn't tell you how many times I reach for "CTRL + Z" in real life...it's almost disturbing. Dmitri Siegel posts a nice piece at Design Observer on Interface Space and how our on-screen activity affects physical life--expressed through the means of contemporary art.
Daily immersion in a two-dimensional space has raised an intriguing question that many contemporary artists can't resist: what is the physicality of the screen? The ubiquitous interface experience has created a symbiosis between the metaphorical space of the computer and the physical world.
Siegel takes us through a few great examples from artists including Hans Gremmen, Doug Aitken, and Jan Robert Leegte.
