Interactive art. Whoa, don’t drool over the page there, handsome. Think about it—a medium where the person participating is actively involved in the creation of the experience.

If there’s any feeling I tend to get from the old fogeys that run our country at the moment, it’s that they have their heads so far up their arses, they can see what they’re having for breakfast.
