This chapter discusses how installation can be used as a medium for the expansion and diversification of the methods through which audiences engage with interactive media. It looks at two projects, Plaatsbepaling and trajets, through which complexity of experiential voice and perspective are addressed. Plaatsbepaling contains no computer technology and belongs to the category of computer-mediated performances called the performance installation. The critique that the phenomenological method is biased in favor of space rather than time is shown by the phenomenology based on the performance of Plaatsbepaling. The responsive and participatory installation, trajets, belongs to the genre of installation animated by performance. The discussion of trajets is facilitated by a transition from Merleau-Ponty’s idea of flesh into Deleuze’s construction of metabolism.

Keywords:   installation, audiences, interactive media, computer technology, performance installation, phenomenology, metabolism
