The dual roles of the spectator as active viewer and intended author in participatory database art

The dual roles of the spectator as active viewer and intended author in participatory database art This paper addresses the role of the spectator in participatory works of database art. Research into the spectator’s role focuses on two leading concepts: open work and participatory culture . We then identify characteristics of participatory database art in terms of authorship, empowerment, and autonomy. Collective authorship consists of an artist’s intention to endow spectators with a certain level of authorship. The implications of the spectator’s role in participatory database art are fully discussed and compared to the concept of the implied reader in reception theory. We conclude that the spectator is both an active viewer and an intended author. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Arts and Technology Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

This paper addresses the role of the spectator in participatory works of database art. Research into the spectator’s role focuses on two leading concepts: open work and participatory culture . We then identify characteristics of participatory database art in terms of authorship, empowerment, and autonomy. Collective authorship consists of an artist’s intention to endow spectators with a certain level of authorship. The implications of the spectator’s role in participatory database art are fully discussed and compared to the concept of the implied reader in reception theory. We conclude that the spectator is both an active viewer and an intended author.
