Title: The Concept of Interaction and Augmented Reality in Artworks
Authors: Atanas Markov

Abstract: This research explores the way in which artworks with augmented reality (AR) interact with the recipient. The expanded capabilities of new technologies allow the stimulation of the human senses at a higher level, which opens wider perspectives for visual artists for new creative pursuits. Such artists with their works try to include the observer in them, challenging his senses, both on a physical and psychological level. Thus, through the interaction work-observer is given a new role for the viewer as an active participant and this makes his emotional experience more complete. Historical connections between the concept of interactivity, augmented reality and the visual arts are also sought. Last but not least, personal experience is shared in the creative search in the field of interactive art, the realization of one with augmented reality and ultimately the feedback of the viewer-participant after immersion in this different from the conventional, extended experience.

Keywords: Augmented Reality (AR), Interactive Art, Visual Art
