Interaction Aesthetics Article

I realize that I’m supposed to get a lot out of this article, but I can’t get around the way the author speaks. It’s like he’s using $5 words when $0.10 words would work, and it makes me feel like the article was written to exclude people from reading it lightly. I mean, “utopian brouhaha”? The article has good information, but it’s almost hidden behind the language.

  1. Haha, I agree! Unnecessary frilly language… 😛

  2. I will agree the man is in desperate need of a good editor(but aren’t we all?). He overuses esthetic, writes in the first person (is he the final say on the subject?) and inserts bits superfluous vocabulary(see above). Thus, making him sound like a pompous art critic ( Though I’m sure I would too if I had to write something on interactive art…). He is discussing a very difficult/dynamic concept, which requires a surgical specificity to address, warranting a bit of his word choice.
