The ‘i =’ Series- Interaction as Improvisation not Imposition The ‘i =’  series of installations and performances were intended to explore the notion of “interactivity” and what constitutes “art” in the current technological age. Central to the work is a focus on human/human and human/compute communication by a subversion of surveillance and control.
