This study looks at interaction at a fundamental structural level, elucidating basic elements of how interaction works among adaptive organisms. This understanding then points to how to develop suitable interfaces for interaction among people and intelligent-adaptive-machines or artworks. I first consider how sensory processes derive from basic biological needs for energy, and that communications, and thereby interaction, develop from reciprocal behaviours of organisms in their environment. I then consider how we might think about the quality of an immersive interaction. Finally I illustrate these considerations in discussing the interfaces used in a range of interactive artworks.
