The aim of this study is to create a framework for interactive art in narrative forms. This study presents the categorization of interactive art into three elements. We establish a conceptual framework for the development of narrative, and we use this framework as the basis for the creation of the prototype of interactive art in narrative form. Interactive art is a form digital installation based art that involves the audience in a way that allows the art to achieve its purpose. Due to technological limitations, interactive art is not yet advanced enough to allow audiences create the narrative. According to the progress of digital technologies, the audience can interact with a character on the screen that has an autonomous role by digital devices. Compared with previous interactive art, interactive art in narrative form provides a “flow” of experience to the audience and involves the audience in a way that allows the art to achieve its purpose. In order to create a framework of interactive art in narrative forms, first, we must categorize interactive art from the viewpoint of narrative. Interactive art can be divided into three categories based on the style of narrative - poetic style, mixed style and narrative style. Within these three categories, to develop the narrative, we revise previous methodologies of the narrative using interactive storytelling. Based on this framework, the author produces interactive art in narrative forms.
