Digital bodies: creativity and technology in the arts and humanities

Digital bodies: creativity and technology in the arts and humanities

Broadhurst, Susan, editor; Price, Sara, editor

This book explores technologies related to bodily interaction and creativity from a multi-disciplinary perspective. ?This book explores technologies related to bodily interaction and creativity from a multi-disciplinary perspective. By taking such an approach, the collection offers a comprehensive view of digital technology research that both extends our notions of the body and creativity through a digital lens, and informs of the role of technology in practices central to the arts and humanities. Crucially, Digital Bodies foregrounds creativity, the interrogation of technologies and the notion of embodiment within the various disciplines of art, design, performance and social science. In doing so, it explores a potential or virtual new sense of the embodied self. This book will appeal to academics, practitioners and those with an interest in not only how digital technologies affect the body, but also how they can enhance human creativity
