Abstract

This paper proposes a critical framework for understanding the digital interface. Its aim is to dispel the instrumental, cybernetic “action, reaction” myth that surrounds the functions of the interface and that constitutes one of the main limitations in their conceptualization today. I argue that a rethinking of the digital interface in terms of its aesthetic and cultural properties is essential if we are to take digital interfaces seriously, and if we are to engage with them on a deeper level.
