Embodiment and technology : towards a utopian dialectic
MetadataShow full item record
This essay examines the Utopian quest for technological embodiment. Through an examination of the interactive and embodied work of David Rokeby A Very Nervous System and Steve Mann's Wearable Computer, this essay posits that the dialectical approach of Rokeby and Mann create an Utopian balance, that seeks to move beyond the anxiety of new media and to position our culture to examine the space between the ultimate dialectics, that of man and the machine.
