Assignment context: Experiments with sound installations, net art, interactive film and other forms of art, are challenging all designers of the creative industry to explore the limits of new media. In the
design processes we have to think of all the necessary requirements to achieve the outcomes we want. With my project I determined the boundaries of new media experiences to improve the quality of emotional involvement.

Pure Nature is characterised as a new media experience with the database structure and the interconnected objects of the video streams at the exhibition. The boundaries of Pure Nature are determined by the playing time and the space wherein users can interact. In relation to space, new media stimulates emotional involvement by connecting the three individual video streams. All four realms of experiences are
integrated to improve the quality of emotional involvement. On a physical level, visitors can sense the whole experience by seeing and hearing the movies, touching artefacts and by smelling the incense. On cognitive and physical level, the information given in the main movie instantly relates to the active video’s of the database streams.
Result:New media experiences involve interaction with time and space and with new media we can predefine boundaries wherein users can interact freely. In general I can say that for emotional involvement we need to guide the subjective experience on both cognitive and physical levels in relation to time and space if we want to achieve a successful new media experience. In this way we can improve the quality of emotional involvement and provide total user experiences.
