Experience Design is a contemporary form of design, which appertains to the field of interaction design. In relation to Interactive art environments, it suggests that potentialities are actualized by those actively participating within physical, virtual and mixed works. In the frames of digitally interactive artworks people interact and actively participate in the course of an event. As there is little consensus as to what constitutes effective experience design, this paper argues that understanding both design and experience as verbs, rather than nouns, could help our understanding of the practice. This paper transcends the boundaries of art and design theory; it puts emphasis on the fact that becoming cannot be predetermined, and how the notions of design, art, experience, becoming and space are intertwined in the subjective experience of interactive artwork
