Embodiment

Research Collection
Collection curated by: 
Description: 

The aim of the embodiment research collection is to give the reader an introduction to relevant researchers, artists, creative works and scholarly works exploring the concept of embodiment and technology, in the hopes that such a framework can inspire the further investigation of works related to the field of electronic literature. Considering the current selection of creative works of electronic literature recorded in the ELMCIP knowledge base, one notes the shift from audiovisual screen-based works where navigation is centered around mouse-clicks to an increase in multimodal works realized on smart devices equipped with haptic and sensor technologies. Works where movement, touch, gestures, location and position are central to the reading and experience of the artwork.

This research collection contains creative works that extends beyond the domain of electronic literature into the realm of digital and electronic art. The artworks are chosen for their ability to reveal the body’s unique qualities to the participant/spectator/audience/user by inviting their bodies become aware of itself, often by mapping input and responses from one sense onto another. The works collected range from interactive installations and screen based video works to wearables, and theatre and dance performances. The critical writing has its base in philosophy, particularly new media phenomenology and embodied cognition and extended mind theory.
