  • Abstract (short paper)

    As cybernetic progress is opening more pathways for telematics, the experience of presence in mediated environments is creating even more dissolution between corporeal intimacy and virtual intimacy. This ultimately leads to the questioning of the very nature of our being, identity and perception of reality. This paper addresses the neuro and cognitive aspects of tele-intimacy and through the discussion of the project Somplexity, examines what is the nature of our intimacy now? It will address the representational issues and performative aspects of tele-intimacy and develop a context for techno sex with neurofeedback system to mediate human perception of intimacy.
