This report was intended to be about interactive art. I sought to ask participants about their interactions with artworks during White Night Melbourne. What came to light was that participants had little to say about individual works. They were willing however to describe their engagement with the festival as a whole their plans, movements and feelings about the events.

This paper is an attempt to draw out some of my more interesting findings from White Night Melbourne. In many ways it brings the project back to my original intention, albeit on a larger scale. Connections are made between knowledge and movement, behaviour and ambience and through the use of mobile social media. What emerges is the numerous ways in which people interact with cities, festivals, technologies and each other.
