Abstract

This book offers an opportunity to reflect upon the various means and modalities adopted by artists and researchers to inscribe the mediated body and its manifestations within the spectrum of current artistic production. Analysing compositional strategies involving technologies which are multimodal, interactive, immersive and/or networked, the authors formulate and describe a new "geography" of perception characteristic of these works, outlining phenomena of sensory immersion and altered cognitive experience at play as well as their intermodal nature. And, if new artistic paradigms such as the transitional, flux, the processual and non-matrixed representation are shown to underpin this experimentation, attention is also paid to artists' investment in evolutive, transversal and/or emergent processes which determine the emerging aesthetic paradigms of contemporary stages in their plurality. The transversal nature of these artistic developments also marks the starting point for a new methodology proposed in the book for the analysis of emerging forms of the contemporary body in art and performance.
