Ernest Edmonds and Stroud Cornock presented a paper about interaction  
in a CAS session at the Computer Graphics 1970 conference. This  
presentation describes Edmonds' latest Shaping Form series of  
interactive works shown this year in Washington DC and Sydney. These  
works develop over time as a result of their interaction with the  
world. The use of the word interaction is reviewed and alternative  
approaches to describing the concept explored. In particular, a  
systems view is taken and contrasted with an action/response model. A  
refined view of such interactions is proposed in which artwork and  
audience are said to influence one another

Ernest Edmonds has been an invited presenter in, for example, the UK,  
France, the USA, Australia, Japan, Taiwan and Malaysia. He has many  
publications in the fields of art, creativity and interaction and has  
exhibited throughout the world, from Moscow to LA. He is editor-in- 
Chief of the journal Leonardo’s Transactions. He is currently  
Professor of Computation and Creative Media at the University of  
Technology Sydney.
