Rirkrit Tiravanija

No overview of interactive art - or appraisal of 20th century artistic trends - would be complete without reference to Thai artist Tiravanija, whose approach to the notion of creative activity has proven hugely influential.

His work is rarely reducible to single objects or even concepts, but instead is characterised by social interaction and the dialogue between artist and audience.

Most famously, this involves the creation of gatherings in which food is prepared, served and eaten, bridging the divide between the actual and art.

Other projects include the construction of environments in which participants can comfortably engage in leisure activities, or involve themselves in collaborative schemes or discussion.
