Movement awareness methods seek to bring attention to one's kinaesthetic state through multi-modal mapping, action-response and psychophysical feedback interactions. In the same light, my artistic motivations in movement-based interactive art seek to ellicit such attention with stimulus-sensation psychophysical feedback with choreographed and mediated or choreomediated artistic installations. This paper discusses the ways in which movement-based interactive art installations introduce the public to the notion of dance as an experiential process of kineasthetic awakening versus dance as the spectacle of the gaze.
