Real virtuality - how to talk about the spatial arts?

Today most of our critical attention goes to either the arts of shapes
and forms (architecture, design) or the arts of the image (photography,
film, video, media art). But  some of the most interesting creative
practices today fall in between: scenogaphy, set design, media skins,
experience design, exhibition design, interactive design. These practices
use architecture, media, light, color, sound, transparency, interactivity,
and human behaviors as their material. How can we talk about these new
"spatial arts"?

Lev Manovich is Professor of Visual Arts at the University of California,
San Diego, and Director of The Lab for Cultural Analysis at California
Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology. Lev Manovich
is the author of Soft Cinema: Navigating the Database (The MIT Press,
