[ interactivity ]


- capable of acting on or influencing each other
- synergistic: used especially of drugs or muscles that work together so the total effect is greater than the sum of the two (or more)
- providing output based on input from the user. This output feeds back into the user's decision process for subsequent interaction. Interactive websites, for instance, allow for more dynamic information browsing and applications such as shopping, banking, etc.

+"If objects think, react and take action beyond their material qualities, spaces and places have to react with them. Objects think because someone has thought about them. Someone has programmed and give them qualities so that they can be integrated into a new logic of the world in which everything is connected to everything." (Vincente Guallart, the metapolis dictionary of advanced architecture)
