Interactive Original Art.
Interactivity is a word that is tied to action - maybe a touch, a thought, a movement - yet it is rarely associated with the visual arts. However, all art, whether it is a performance piece, an installation, a two-dimensional painting, a book, or even a movie is, by nature, interactive. As the viewers, we take in the unique ideas of the artist and interpret it through our own personal perspectives. At its essence, art is a conversation between the artist and the viewer, even if no one says a word.
If that isn’t interactive, I don’t know what is.
My goal when I started Project IOA was to have a platform to present my creative projects and open a dialogue with the viewer. My mission is to work with those who believe art may not be accessible to them and reveal that creativity is a joy that can experienced by everyone. Through that expression, we can celebrate our diversity and our unity, our questions and our answers, our struggles and our triumphs.
Art makes us human, after all.
