Mapping Interactivity seminar gathers together artists, teachers, researchers, coders, musicians and media designers to present their ideas about interactivity and its possibilities. As the educators of future artists, we feel that it is important to ask how the constantly evolving and shifting relation between art and technology informs artistic creation and research. Could an overview of parallel artistic and scientific activities investigating interactivity encourage interdisciplinary communication and give ideas to new approaches? Could the concept of interaction function as a uniting factor within not only artistic practices but also between pedagogy and research?
