72 Interactive Art Installations

From Surreal Sandbox Simulations to Futuristic Party Lounges

— October 1, 2012 — Eco
Interactive art installations have been quite prominent in the art world as of late as they boast an inviting nature.

Though conventional mediums like painting and sculpture still account for a large part of artistic work, the interactive art installation genre is certainly prominent in modern creations. Art has been propelled by a new era revolutionized by technology, the Internet and a vast change in culture. The vanguard has, as of late, been centered around often modernistic creations that encourage visitors to participate in mediums of art. A sense of inclusiveness and more engagement from the spectators make this movement highly beneficial, both to artists and those experiencing each artistic piece.

Gallery goers can now get lost and become mesmerized by artistic statements that seamlessly marry technology, design, sound and visionary aesthetics. Interactive art installations point to a new era and are testament to the continual evolution of art.
