Andersen, Christian Ulrik and Soren Bro Pold, eds. Interface Criticism : Aesthetics Beyond the Buttons. Aarhus Universitetsforlag, 2011.


“This book aims to offer a much needed perspective on the role of artistic practices and aesthetic theory within interface culture. As editors of the book, we see interface criticism as an appropriate paradigm for a critical discussion of the computer and how it relates to art and culture today.” (9)

All interfaces “are designs that combine — and translate — signs and signals. As such, the interface is at the core of the computer.” (9)

“in this book interface aesthetics will be developed as a critical investigation of interfaces, what they mean for — and how they function in — contemporary culture.” (10)
