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, 2005), and The Language of New Media (The 
MIT Press, 2001).

Uwe Br=C3=BCckner is Professor for Scenography at the University of Art 
and Design Basle, Institute Interior Design and Scenography. He is a 
member of the Art Directors Club Germany. His own studio 
atelierbr=C3=BCckner is located in Stuttgart, Germany and has realized a
number of projects, to which belong the pavilion =E2=80=9Eviv(r)e les 
fronti=C3=A8res=E2=80=9C at the Swiss Expo.02, as well as the pavilion 
=E2=80=9ECYCLEBOWL=E2=80=9C at the German Expo 2000.

Vera B=C3=BChlmann is a researcher at the University of Art and Design 
Basle, as well as a PHD candidate at the University Basle, Institut
