Work in progress

- This term tends to replace Art, in the digital domain: New media, Tactical media. Deep media (see Frank Rose (The Art of Immersion, Norton &Co 2011)) insists on actual engagment of the public.
- The term media has (notably) two very different uses, as notes [Quaranta] (pp. 29 sq):
. the kind of material or material process used by an artist (with reference to Greenberg),
. a mode of communication, mostly "mass communication" (with reference to McLuhan).
Then, writes Quaranta : "The term corresponds to an indistinct cloud of meanings that turn every debate on its true nature into a comic parody of itself".

- And interaction design see [Janet Murray].
