Intimate Transactions - Close Encouteers of Another Kind, by Tony Fry
ABSTRACT: Tony Fry explains how Intimate Transactions is much more process than product and as such it confounds views of detached objects available for critical scrutiny. He declares that "Intimate Transactions ever remains an unfinished work until realised through user interaction. Observation is thus denied by the primacy of enacted and individuated experience (looking is displaced by acting)". He goes on to connect this with ideas of deep ecology, re-futuring and new design/art practices.
