Happy Bday Walt Disney!

One of the most beautiful things of Walt Disney's genius was a characteristic that also allowed him to be many years ahead of his time: his inventing interaction with fantasy and having had, himself, a constant, interactive experience with his audience. Disney knew or sensed that everything is interconnected and, be it entertainment or education, a growing population in a world of quick, eletronic comunication  will only respond to interactive experience. In a world of speed, only impact and directed involvement communicates. The scission between subject and object, audience and stage,  and action only tends to disappear with the technology of immediacy because of the lack of time to contemplate. From this, came, in art, contemplative interaction, for which, Disney threw the seed.
