mechanical freedoms

6 Nov

ein ziemlich interessantes interview mit tim etchells im corpus, wo er unter anderem über die freiheit und kreativität des zuschauers spricht.

I think the current fetishisation of all things supposedly interactive and participatory is rather inane – especially when it’s reduced to pushing buttons or voting for what ending you’d like. I don’t think these kind of mechanical freedoms are always the interesting ones in art. There’s so much rich work done in the form of theatre, performance, dance, film, the novel, where a different sense of the spectators’ freedom – to think, to imagine, to create-in-watching – is explored. As watchers I believe that people are very inventive.
