Download The cyborg experiments: the extensions of the body in the by Joanna Zylinska PDF

By Joanna Zylinska

The Cyborg Experiments analyzes the demanding situations posed to corporeality by way of techology. Taking as their place to begin the paintings of the hugely influential functionality artists Orlan and Stelarc, the essays during this well timed and demanding assortment increase a couple of questions in terms of new conceptions of embodiment, identification and otherness within the age of recent applied sciences: Has the physique develop into out of date? Does transgender problem conventional rules of employer? Have we continually been cyborgs?In addition to highlighting the playful personality of electronic aesthetics, the participants examine moral concerns in regards to the possession of bodies and the experiments we practice on them. during this manner the publication explores how humanism, and ideas of "the human", were put less than expanding scrutiny because of new advancements in technological know-how, media and communications.Contributors:John Appleby, Rachel Armstrong, Fred Botting, Julie Clarke, Gary corridor, Chris Hables grey, Meredith Jones, Orlan, Mark Poster, Jay Prosser, E.
