Interaction with technology is occurring increasingly in public and semi-public
settings and as a result the roles of
spectator and performer are frequently being
challenged by the deployment of computing
systems. In this paper we discuss
how the spectator, performer and interface
feature in what we class as performance,
how we might analyse their interrelation-ships
and how traditional roles have become
destabilised historically and technologically.
In studying these relationships, we examine
technological and non-technological examples
from art, performance and exhibition design.
