Loyalty is an interactive artwork that expresses the human experience by incorporating art with technology. This project will express the concept of Loyalty by depicting the concept of Ultimate Interaction (between the artwork and participant) and Selective Acknowledgment. The theme of this artwork was inspired by the story of the Gentian Flower also known as the "Loyalty" flower. The objectives of this interactive artwork are to show expression through the use of light, sound, and movement and demonstrate the concept of Selective Acknowledgment through the use of wireless technology. In the interaction the participant actively engages with the artwork to express the concept of loyalty. Consequently, the interaction of the participant not only becomes the artwork, but becomes the expression of the artwork itself. The goal of this project and artwork is to demonstrate the evolution of interactive artwork from participant becoming the artwork to the participant becoming the expression of the artwork by their gesture based interaction

Background
1. Affection
2. Emotion
3. Cousteau by Terence Arjo (2007 Spring thesis in ITP)(http://arjothesis.blogspot.com/)
4. Dune 4.0 by Roosegaarde (http://www.studioroosegaarde.nl/)

Audience
Everyone large or small

Conclusion
The expression of the physical gesture that portrays this Selective Acknowledgement is the concept of Loyalty that is delivered through the participant. In the participant’s interaction with the artwork, the participant becomes the artwork (DUNE 4.0). In the case of “Loyalty,” the participant not only becomes the artwork, but becomes the expression of the artwork
