How to Explain Interactivity to an Audience

On 11 November 1965, J. Beuys walked, in the context of an art exhibition, with a dead hare in his arms, hugging and whispering to her. He called it How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare. His face was bathed in honey and gold dust, and a foot wrapped in felt dragged a copper plate over the floor. Everything was prepared to understand the potentialities and connectivities –both symbolic and physical- of that encounter like a shamanic and performative act; also as an arrangement of elements or data that would allow cross flow meanings and information. A whole combination of alchemical transits and thoughts...

We thought he was who explained the works of art -the meaning of art- to the dead hare. What we never knew, and now we speculate with this, is that he might be asking to the hare: please dear, could you explain it to me?
