Abstract

In our virtual environment studio at Michigan Tech, a performing artist makes analog and digital penwald drawings, lying down on a huge canvas, dancers create music and visuals by dancing, and children and a puppy make interactive arts together. In each case, there are different embarrassing moments (e.g., how, what, and who) to audience and even an artist. However, those embarrassing moments are real points that “make arts arts”.Our works are highlighted in the line of embarrassing points of traditional arts and implications of embarrassment for design research are discussed.
