Static visualizations do not exist

basically you’re saying that any medium isn’t static; if you’ve ever gawked at a Renaissance painting or the frescos of an old European church—are they also made interactive?

Is anything really static? Is a rock in the woods static once observed by a human-being?

the current difference between ‘static’ and ‘interactive’ is a difference of tactility; whereas a painting is a medium that can be viewed and interpreted, a piece of clay or dough can be shaped, and the reshaping of the dough will create new views and interpretations
