The Internet of Bodies

 

The Internet of Bodies points to a future in which we inter-connect ourselves to others through a networked “multi-self,” enabled by hyper-enhancement of the senses and a deeper
tele-intuitive understanding of the virtual self.

 

The Internet of Bodies is a practise as research programme of work initiated by Ghislaine Boddington to encompass and expand on her three decades of research into the emergence and evolution of virtual physical blended presence and digital intimacy. This contemporary research has resulted in an extensive set of public engagement and consultancy work across a wide range of sectors, through keynote presentations, directed performances and installations, curations, discussions and writings.

The Internet of Bodies engages in future digital issues for our living bodies. It explores the fast moving integration of humans with today's technologies, pointing to major transformations, not only to our bodies but to our understanding of ourselves, our identities and our relationship to the ‘other’. It points to a future in which we inter-connect ourselves to others through a networked “multi-self,” enabled by hyper-enhancement of the senses and a deeper tele-intuitive understanding of the virtual self.
