Introduction: editor's introduction to interacting with presence
2014 (English)In: Interacting with presence: HCI and the sense of presence in computer-mediated environments / [ed] Riva, G., Waterworth, J. A. & Murray, D., Warsaw: Walter de Gruyter, 2014, 1-8 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
This volume arose from a longstanding conviction that our subjective experienceof information technology is profoundly affected by the extent to which we feelourselves to be really present in the mediated worlds that the technology makesavailable to us. ‘Presence’ is just this “feeling of being inside the mediated world”.It is a crucial and increasingly necessary element in both design and usage ofmany recent and developing interactive technologies. In the same way that ‘feelingpresent’, or consciously ‘being there’, in the physical world around us is based uponperception, physical action and activity in that world, so the feeling of presencein a technologically-mediated environment is a function of the possibilities forinteraction.
