The interface as mediator

Digital Art and Aesthetics by Umberto Roncoroni

Umberto Roncoroni:

The interface is a mediation between the desire and the imagination of the user and all the tools one might need and the actual functions of the software, which are limited.

The above is my translation. Here’s the original Spanish (let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement):

La interfaz es una mediación entre el deseo y la imaginación del usuario y todas las herramientas que se podrían al respecto necesitar y las funciones reales de software, que son limitadas.
