Abstract

his paper addresses a strategy designed to handle the increasing and broadening interactivity demands in software. This paper specifically looks into using other interdisciplinary areas of art and music as an inspiration material for creating new forms of user/computer communications. The projects looked at are a project for the Dutch Social Security System, a work-flow driven administrative application and ending with an in-depth look at the Uniface 7 4GL interface which uses the Bauhaus as the jumping point for creating a new image-language.
