What is interactive media?


What is interactive media?

In the past years, technological advances have allowed the Internet to radically impact media creation and viewers’ media consumption habits. Experiences such as connected viewing, defined by Cesar and Chorianopoulos (2014) as any product or service that augments the interactive experience by integrating Internet access, web-based interactivity, game play, and/or social networking allow audiences to engage with the material and become part of an experience described by Brachet (Lietaert, 2012, p. 125) as an interaction that ‘is not just going click, click, click on a mouse… it can be very much a sensory and emotional experience.’

To be launched in November, “What is interactive media?” will assess the current state of the field by interviewing established interactive media creators such as Katerina Cizek, Brett Gaylor, Jeff Soyk and Florian Thalhofer.
