Abstract (in English): 

From the publication:

In her article "Towards a Multimodal Analysis of da Rimini's Dollspace" Maya Zalbidea
Paniagua analyzes Francesca da Rimini's Dollspace <> (1997-2001). By analyzing Dollspace Zalbidea Paniagua reinforces the proposition that studies on material aesthetics and intermediality encompass a process of rethinking the notion of boundaries across material structures. This is clearly shown in da Rimini's Dollspace, where ambivalence cuts across discursive genres and distinct material formats of image, text, and audio. Hypertext engages the user/participant in a dialogue with the machine and, in the case of Dollspace, across people's sexual attitudes. Dollspace seeks to do more than to just shock the user: it wants to haunt its user to become an intersubjectively embodied act.
