Interaction is one of the essential qualities of media arts, but a work cannot be completed if you just exchange information interactively with a machine controlled by a computer. What is freshly generated by "touching" or "participating" is important. For example, in experiences a compound eye, a new unnatural experience is produced only by wearing a spherical object with many small holes. Se Mi Sei Vicino does an excellent job of visualizing the reaction which happens when people approach each other. tameiki-majiri where a sigh is released while turning a faucet on is a simple interaction but causes laughter to escape from the viewers' mouth.
