Comics are an appreciative art kind because we normally appreciate Spiegelman’s Maus in comparison to practically any other comic – Seth’s Clyde Fans, George Herriman’s Krazy Kat, or Hogarth’s Rake’s Progress. Tuesday poems and quarter restless music aren’t appreciative art kinds because they don’t normally figure as comparison classes in appreciation. 17 18 A philosophy of computer art Putting the idea another way, an appreciative art kind is a group of works that share a distinctive feature in common and that are normally appreciated partly for having that feature.

Some traditional works have changing displays – Alexander Calder’s mobiles turn in the wind. Two factors explain why you and I might appreciate one of these mobiles differently: it has moved or we have appreciated it differently (or both). Interactive works are quite different from mobiles. They go the way they do because of what we do in the process of appreciating them. Spinoffs The special feature of computer art is its interactivity, which sets it apart from other art. 7 But some traits that have been used to define interactivity are better seen as its spinoffs.

Moreover, while real-time processing isn’t absolutely essential for interactivity, most computer works do display outputs in real time. The point of most computer art works depends on the user’s awareness that they’re interacting, and a long time lag between input and output inhibits this awareness, whereas real-time response shows the user how her actions lead to changes in the work’s display. She can come to know this in other ways – by being told about the set-up, for instance – but real-time processing is direct.
