Interdisciplinarity / First interpretation

(how you view, incorporate, what you interested in)

Inter-disciplines. It involves the incorporation, whether wholly or singularly, different mediums into a single piece of artwork. Based on my personal understanding, in Interactive Media, this encompasses possibly video, sound or robotics, just to name a few. As an interdisciplinary student in training, I am interested in the ‘wholeness’ of the experience, that it envelopes you by harnessing your 5 senses. I like how we are not restricted to a single medium, and by borrowing bits and snippets of different mediums, we are able to bring the best across to the audience. I am interested in mostly interactive installations, for the reason aforementioned earlier. Interactive installations provide a strong statement point, and perhaps, by incorporating little bits from other mediums, are able to make audiences better relate to the work.

One of the most beautiful installations I have chanced upon in my research earlier was Yayao Kusama’s Infinity Mirror room. It’s aesthetically pleasing, and a fresh take from Kusama’s huge, somewhat overwhelming (personal interpretation on it), polka dots.
