Abstract:

  • Panel: The Madness of Methods: Emerging Arts Research Practices

    Draw­ing upon the­o­ret­i­cal works in cog­ni­tive sci­ence, af­fect the­ory, and sci­ence fic­tion, I will an­a­lyze con­tem­po­rary and his­toric rep­re­sen­ta­tions of neural in­stru­men­ta­tion through­out a va­ri­ety of media for­mats, in­clud­ing a per­sonal in­ter­ac­tive an­i­ma­tion pro­ject.  I will con­tex­tu­al­ize these rep­re­sen­ta­tions of per­cep­tual in­quiry across in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary frame­works, high­light­ing sug­gested fan­tasies as­so­ci­ated with each form.  I will show how uses of body-based sen­sors pre­sent the cor­po­real and cog­ni­tive sys­tems as nar­ra­tive spec­ta­cle.  As per­cep­tual tools and meth­ods are ap­pro­pri­ated from the sci­ences, new are­nas of hy­brid de­sign re­search prac­tice are es­tab­lished.
