Abstract

This short paper summarizes insights that were gained during research on the characteristics of environments that initiate interaction as intuitive interaction. It further outlines that the form of openness that environments require in order to initiate intuitive interaction is at the basis of an understanding of traditional art in China. The notion of blandness and its meaning in the Eastern context serves as a point of departure for an exploration on how a different understanding of potentiality could be helpful in thinking frameworks of augmented environments.
