"I am Vicki Moulder the author of INTERACTION ART.org. This site documents my most recent public artwork, research and upcoming projects. I’m a PhD Candidate studying at the School of Interactive Arts + Technology, at Simon Fraser University, Surrey, BC, Canada. I work under the supervision of Ron Wakkary and Carman Neustaedter.
My dissertation explores the design of social engagement in relationship to alternate reality games (ARG) and site-specific artworks. I draw on cultural theories rooted in fine art practices; primarily through the lens of theatre to investigate how ARG design can support the exploration of real-world places. I also write about community art practices, social media, design interventions, and arts research.
I am passionate about the synthesis of art and science research and have been involved in a number of large-scale projects under the umbrella of INTERACTION ART.ORG. I also enjoy working with people and organizations on the development of outreach programs that promote healthy communities.
