"The traditional activity of art has been the representation of reality - manipulating materials to create tangible mirrors of our experience and desire. Now with the mechanisms of the new digital technologies, the artwork can become itself a simulation of reality - an immaterial digital structure encompassing synthetic spaces which we can literally enter. Here the viewer is no longer consumer in a mausoleum of objects, rather he/she is traveller and discoverer in a latent space of sensual information, whose aesthetics are embodied both in the coordinates of its immaterial form and in the scenarios of its interactively manifest form. In this temporal dimension the interactive artwork is each time re-structured and re-embodied by the activity of its viewers." (Jeffrey Shaw, 1992)
