Reengineering of the Sensoriun and Imaginary Landscape: Mixed Reality


Session Title:

  • Mapping and the Subject as Body

Presentation Title:

  • Reengineering of the Sensoriun and Imaginary Landscape: Mixed Reality




  • The article turns to exploration, understanding and practice of artistic-scientific landscape transformations. The landscape is understood as the space of experience dominated by the embodiment of the subjects and objects. Physically, the body inhabits the space that it is. To be is to become a matter of corporal space. Thus, the space is part of the body. Body and space are blended, mixed, impregnated because  the spatial structure of landscape belongs to the  description of our surroundings. The sensório-motor apparatus is on the landscape, space for anthropic proposal, as Peter Anders’s (2003) purpose, based on human experience in the body, between the space and information. The research involves studies on the imagined geography and environment art.”

    Geotagging  transforms the territorial configuration of the landscape by creating an abstract projection of connection nodes in a global cartography, and each new appearance of synthetic objects, change the context and  also the meaning generation process. According to the Brazilian geographer Milton Santos (2004), physical reconfiguration allows the construction of a new story. We, the humans beings,  are responsible for the rebuilt our environment. and Santos purpose that it happens through the perception of motion of the all things and events. In this re-construction of the environment we exist as co-loccated ecological beings. Domingues (2008) stress that the subject becomes biocybrid  in the flow of the dynamic relation between subject, object and environment. And this proposition overcomes the dichotomy between subject and object, as well as the nature and culture.

    Our researches describes a transdisciplinary artistic project in art and technoscience that is  developening in the LART– Research Laboratory of Art and TechnoScience, at the University of Brasília, Brazil.
