A rather timely collection on interactive digital art and its relation to academic research. The editors have been involved with interactive art as part of academia for a long time, first in Loughborough and then in Sydney. The book brings together reports and reflections from fifteen artist-researchers, predominantly focusing on PhD projects, where the main topics are ways to conceptualize the artistic-research process, the question of audience experience, and the nature of the resulting knowledge contributions. This material is framed by useful introductions and reflections by Edmonds and Candy as well Stephen Scrivener. I find the book to provide useful insights into one approach for bringing art and research practices closer together, mostly from the perspective of what art practice can bring to existing academic structures. The main shortcoming, in my opinion, is the exclusive focus on artworks for individual use which I find quite limiting even though it is clearly in line with the values of the academic HCI community, which appears to be the primary intellectual orientation of the editors and contributors in the book.
