Creating Interaction: A Storytelling Framework for Arts and Design Referring Quantum Theories


In art practices, the challenge of enhancing practitioner’s creativity is the most important topic in the filed of arts and design. As once assumed, the creativity is the most vital ingredient as its appearance is unpredictable just like quantum leaps (Koyama and Niwase, 2017, p.3). Referring to the String Theory, the eleven dimensions of space-time might show similar patterns with information exchanges of interactions. The physicist “sets out to break nature down into its component parts while the artist synthesizes different features of reality” (Shlain, 1991, p.16). This deconstruction-reconstruction process is the core of structuring interactive stories, which might inform innovations for the art and design. I aim to apply trans-disciplinary thinking by bringing some insights from physics into art and design practices as inspirations for my research. To find opportunities that might encourage creativity in art practices, a storytelling framework for arts and design is developed and used as an interactive application to help create interaction. Therefore, I compare the “quantum entanglement” to the “information loop of interaction” as analogy between the physics and phenomena of art. By identify the eleven dimensions of interaction, a theoretical framework called Interaction Hyperspace is proposed, which helps create interactive stories and providing possibilities on innovated concept design. The research is also engaged with professional practices, including application programming, academic teachings, and interactive narrative design as case studies.
