This chapter studies the screen’s role in orchestrating the spectator’s interaction with sculptural screen-based works. It analyzes the notion of “spectator participation” by detailing how media screens are capable of generating oppressive viewing conditions, strictly delimiting the viewer’s interaction with the work. It also reviews influential closed-circuit video installations that explore the “architectures” of media spectatorship, considering the fusion of two incompatible processes.

Keywords:   sculptural screen-based works, spectator participation, media screens, viewer interaction, closed-circuit video installations, media spectatorship
