Understanding the relationship between user and artefact in interfaces moving beyond transparency and into experience provision, is becoming an important area within HCI. The user-artefact relationship is central to aesthetics dealing with contemplation, a term describing how the artwork makes the user alternate between reflection and immersion. By analysing two interactive artefacts, an artwork and a design proposal, this paper investigates how contemplation appears in and can be transferred to interactive artefacts aimed at providing seductive, fun and interesting experiences.
