This article wishes to explore the interactivity of photographic images through the author’s installation t, which combines traditional photographic processes along with interactive digital artwork. For this purpose, various works of visual art, such as painting, sculpture, performance art, etc., will be studied in order to reveal their creators’ intentions towards interactivity of visuals. This research aims to serve as a comparative framework for the further investigation of interactivity within the digital art realm. Methods of interaction will be examined in order to reveal the changes in photographic representation that digital art has brought about. Acquired knowledge will be the base for examining t in terms of its interface design, production process, and its relationship with the audience. Thus, this article hopes to promote thinking at the crossroads of photography and digital art to discover possibilities of photographic representation in its correlation with the audience.
