Interactive technologies have become a part of many different artistic practices. Nowadays artists make use of sensors, electronic circuits, computation, and algorithms to create engaging aesthetic experiences.

Marije Baalman applies her extensive experience as an artist and as an engineer to guide the reader through the creation process of interactive digital artworks. She elaborates on different techniques for creating meaningful interactions and presents detailed case studies of a range of artistic work from the field to illustrate the techniques in practice.

Composing Interactions brings together aesthetic considerations, practical guidelines for project development, and an overview of sensors, circuits, and processing algorithms.

For the book launch, Marije created a lecture-performance “Composing an Interaction”
