Into The Frame is a unique kind of art exhibit. This particular exhibit lets users interact with the art and experience visual art sonically as well as physically. Into the Frame brings the art to the viewer in a multitude of ways.

Researchers at Middlesex University created the exhibit as both a display of art and an experiment. The exhibit is operated through a rotating pen on a ball type device that allows users to design much of the exhibit themselves.

The textures in the painting are customized based on the resistance given through the pen. After that, a 3D sound interface kicks in and adds the sound element to it. An example is that a user will hear a splash if they 'touch' the water. This exhibit shows that art can be infinitely more interesting with an interactive element.
