Wrapped In Code

The Future Of The Informed Body

NODE Festival the biennial forum for digital arts is taking place April 27. to May 2. in Frankfurt.

NODE15 is dedicated to the negotiation of the human body throughout current technological developments and how this is being expressed in our present projects; utopias; and fictions. We will reflect on processes of embodiment; the integral role of the body in perception and interaction; as location of implicit knowledge; and as a tool we constantly try to extend and optimize.

The Architecture and Performative Design specialization has been invite to show Digital Bodies at Naxoshalle.

Mark Farid

For 24 hours a day for 28 days, Mark Farid is planning to wear a VR Headset through which he will experience life through another person’s eyes and ears.  Over the course of the project, it will become apparent whether Mark will begin to lose his own sense of self, and start to inhabit the reality of the other person. www.meta-narrative.co.uk
