Abstract:

  • The most attractive quality of technology is It produces the pleasurable feeling of direct contact between the body and the object. The old, sterile contemplation of “artistic illusion”, where the object is unalterable through contact with the subject of interpretation, is replaced by the actions of the body which leaves its mark on the object. By physical actions in real time, the natural energy of the body enters into flux with the artificial energy of the machine. From now on, artistic creation counts on technology which both permits poetic thought to symbolically treat the world of sensorial situations experienced in connection with machines, and to ponder the questions of our human condition.
