Senses of Embodiment: Art, Technics, Media

Series:

Edited By Mika Elo and Miika Luoto

This volume is a collection of essays that presents both theory- and practice-based approaches to questions concerning the embodiment of sense.
Exploring the opening of meaning in sensible configurations, the texts also address the medial structures – at once aesthetic, bodily and technical – that condition our access to whatever makes sense to us.
The texts show in various ways how these phenomena call for trans-disciplinary research, and how theoretical or philosophical questioning gains from the experimental possibilities of artistic research.

Alex Arteaga’s research integrates aesthetic and philosophical practices through the topics of aesthetic production of knowledge, aesthetic emergence of sense, phenomenology, enactivism and auditory architecture. From 2008 to 2012, he was an academic researcher at the Collegium for the Advanced Study of Picture Act and Embodiment at Humboldt University. Most recently, he has worked on the research project Visual and Auditory Perceptual Apparatus for the Evaluation of City Development in Agglomerations in cooperation with the Zurich University of the Arts and as the head of the Auditory Architecture Research Unit and Visiting Professor in the masters program of Sound Studies at the Berlin University of the Arts. Currently, he is leading the three-year research project Architecture of Embodiment as Einstein Junior Fellow at the Berlin University of the Arts.

Laura Beloff is an internationally acclaimed artist and currently an Associate Professor and the Head of Section for Interaction Design & Computer Games at IT University Copenhagen. Research interests include practice-based investigations into a combination of various traditional materials and methods with technology, information, and organic matter, locating the core of the research into the cross section of art/design, technology and science. Her research has specifically focused on a technologically enhanced human figure adapting to an increasingly complex world that includes technological, modified environments. The research is manifested, additionally to academic publications, in a form of process-based and participatory installations, programmed conceptual structures and networked wearable objects.
