What strategies and methods are applied to catch attention and stimulate
participation in the interaction?
other people do it is the foremost attractant. Because from afar
the casual passer-by hears some music but also sees people intently
involved in gettingwet or trying to avoid getting wet by placing
themselves in the piece, it offers a possibility for public transgression
within accepted boundaries: the piece is there established by some
authority, people are enjoying it, no one is there telling people
what to do or what to expect (like Disneyland). So people can just
jump in right away or maybe wait until everyone else has left if
they are shy.
Are there intended limits for the interaction possibilities and
are a variety of kinds of behavior I have noticed from people that
were not my original intention, but are engaging and apparently
fun. One is bending up and down by the knees to raise and lower
the pitch by doppler shiting the frequency. Other things are water
play, mostly children splashing each other or tricking their parents
into getting wet.
