“Interactive” technology usually means playing a mindless game or tapping into a remote computer; it certainly has nothing to do with proximity to other human beings. But multimedia artist Tennessee Rice Dixon, currently of the New York School of Visual Arts’ computer department, could change that perception, at least for one evening. Her CD-ROM, ScruTiny in the Great Round, allows users to construct collages of mythic images, music, and text; today, bookstore visitors get a chance to “test-drive” this program in a big-screen format and talk (rather than interface) with its creator. At 7 p.m. at Borders, 5871 Leesburg Pike, Baileys Crossroads. FREE. (703) 998-0404. CP
