Telematics: Extending Bodies

Telematics: Extending Bodies

(p.85) 2 Telematics: Extending Bodies

Susan Kozel

The MIT Press

This chapter offers five phenomenologies based on different projects including a phenomenology called Spacemaking: Virtuality and Materiality, which shows that there is no change in basic human qualities when people engage with each other through technologies. A telematic performance, Ghosts and Astronauts, addresses issues regarding the loss of the body in telepresence. Another phenomenology, a hyperreflective experiment, addresses the concepts of space and psychoanalysis. One other phenomenology that is directed particularly at a dance audience discusses the issues of ideology concerning the production and dissemination of ideas around performances. The notion of extended bodies is also presented through several telematic performances. The chapter reflects on ideas that include flesh, networked space, and reversibility. It further provides a materialist account of space and virtuality, and addresses educational uses of online technologies.

Keywords:   phenomenology, telematic performances, space, psychoanalysis, ideology, networked space, flesh, reversibility, virtuality
