Disney Mystical Seed
Contemplative Interaction involves immersion and yet reflection from the audience. One's physical presence affects the setting to reveal more aspects of itself, sometimes of a beauty that arouses contemplation, or of messages that elicit reflection. The mystical dimension of it relates to a synchrony between the subject and his surroundings, as if both are part of one same being. That is exactly what happens in a classical Disney storytelling ride, which is set to motion for and because of one's presence in it, eliciting from one appreciation for its fantasy, which keeps revealing itself as the ride goes along, as well as full immersion in its motion.
Contemplative Interaction is the newest form of the union of art and technology, and its exhibitions in shows and expositions keep developing throughout, generally arousing awe and elevation of one's spirit.
