Rafael Lozano-Hemmer – Interactive Art

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is an artist who creatives interactive installations that use technology and software to make his pieces seem more lively. A viewer may interact with the installations, but the programs and technology involved in some of the projects also allow the installations to interact back, adding a new perspective and creating a unique experience for each viewer.

At first, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read that Lozano-Hemmer made interactive installations, I thought that maybe one could walk through them or move a piece or two. I was surprised and delighted to see the interactions between viewer and artwork itself in some of his pieces, with the programs involved adding a new dimension to the work.
