Illusion of Technology in the Human-Computer Interactive Art 

Hyunkyoung Cho, Joonsung Yoon

Human-computer interactive art suffers from an obsession about the illusion of technology. Karl Marx defined that the illusion indicates not the form but the "effect of inversion" which is originated from a social relation. In Martin Heidegger's sense, the illusion represents "enframing(Gestell)", and it send the human-computer interactive art to busy instrumental circumstances.

For the removing the illusion, we must see beyond correctness as merely instrumental interpretation. Because the truth of technology is "unconcealedness" of a lager whole that contains more than parts. It can open up a less hegemonic and more pluralistic relation between human and technology.
