Abstract: This article discusses the relationships between interactive installations and ethics by describing a perspective that emphasizes the function of an artwork rather than its medium or genre. The text proposes that aesthetic judgements function as mechanisms for promoting specific concepts, people and social institutions, and that these promotions occur with or without a person’s awareness.
