The Metaplastic Arts And Design Theory

Interactivity has become the main aspect of new media since the fast evolution of digital processes and media convergence on the Web. In brief, the notion of interactivity means the possibility of real time interaction with digital media. The new media along with technological convergence are changing the model of mass communication into new ways for people to interact and communicate with one another. The digital innovations of the Internet have made possible the shifting towards the new media model of communication from the traditional “one-to-many” mass communication to the wide range of possibilities of a “many-to-many” Web communication. The conversational dynamics of mediated communication forms can be considered as a central point in understanding new media.
