Titled Re-wiring the Body, the discussion will explore the digital body, its substance and borders and our attitudes towards it.

About

Speakers will trace artistic practices and theoretical approaches that explore the cyborg, the post human body, CGI imagery and digital skin. From biotechnology to sci-fi and pornography, speakers will uncover the 'flesh' of the human body and explore how it is erased, sexualised and appropriated when fused with the digital. Future bodies and our fascination with the post human will be explored via notions of remixing, reconstructing and reassembling.

Participants

Kate O'Riordan (Professor of Digital Culture | School of Media, Film and Music, University of Sussex)

Rosanna McNamara (Programming Assistant | Cultural Programming Team | King's College London)

Rebecca Saunders (Teaching Fellow | Digital Humanities | King's College London)
