I've been exploring the contributions of artists to the world of interactive digital media. Here are videos of some of the interesting works I've come across recently. Some of the videos are of older works, but were new to me.

(I'm still searching for more information regarding the Kinetic Pond.)
Rose Finn-Kelcey: It Pays to Pray. Interactive Sculpture at the Cass Sculpture Foundation. Filmed by Robin Fitton.
"Insert 20p and select one of a range of prayers. An interactive sculpture which gives you back the money after providing an interesting message. Warning not to be used by the holy or holey. The prayers were about relationships with various chocolate bar brands." It Pays to Pray Description
