Now published in a new, larger format, the latest title in the "V&A Contemporary" series explores the increasing use of experimental interactive design in our living and working environments. Spaces that interact with the people who use them or pass through them have in a very short time become ubiquitous. From an installation in a London shopping centre that registers the presence of passers-by with patterns of coloured light and sound, to an interactive artwork in the boardroom of the TV channel Five, the projects featured in this book engage with our wishes and bodily sensations, fusing inventive design with interactive media and technologies.
