An Exhibition of Interactive and Relational Artworks
CURATOR'S STATEMENT
The title I’ve been waiting for you signifies an unfulfilled relationship, an unbalanced equation, a situation in need of another person. I’ve been waiting for you is a show where the artwork is unstable – where the exhibited works are only the catalyst for the creation of a sense of sociability, and in which the viewer is required to play the protagonist and complete the work. This is a show that demands intervention from the audience and in turn offers the resulting encounter as the art itself.

Although each installation in the exhibition uses at least one computer, I’ve been waiting for you is not about technology, but rather about the things which technologies allow us to do. The show reflects the emerging aesthetics of media arts in which networks, interfaces and sensors play an increasingly important role in the creative process. However, I’ve been waiting for you is primarily informed by older debates about the nature of art, the artist and the audience, reaching back from Bourriaud’s ‘Relational Aesthetics’ through Fluxus and beyond, whilst at the same time exploring the languages and the poetics of interactivity as an artform.
