Bodies in Code by Mark B. N. Hansen

Book Description

Bodies in Code explores how our bodies experience and adapt to digital environments. Cyberculture theorists have tended to overlook biological reality when talking about virtual reality, and Mark B. N. Hansen's book shows what they've been missing. Cyberspace is anchored in the body, he argues, and it's the body--not high-tech computer graphics--that allows a person to feel like they are really "moving" through virtual reality. Of course these virtual experiences are also profoundly affecting our very understanding of what it means to live as embodied beings. Hansen draws upon recent work in visual culture, cognitive science, and new media studies, as well as examples of computer graphics, websites, and new media art, to show how our bodies are in some ways already becoming virtual.

Books By Author Mark B. N. Hansen

Feed-Forward by Mark B. N. Hansen Feed-Forward, Paperback (January 2015)

Even as media in myriad forms increasingly saturate our lives, we nonetheless tend to describe our relationship to it in terms from the twentieth century: we are consumers of media, choosing to engage with it. The author shows that media is no longer separate from us but has become an inescapable part of our very experience of the world.

Critical Terms for Media Studies by Mark B. N. Hansen Critical Terms for Media Studies, Paperback (March 2010)

Communications, philosophy, film and video, digital culture: media studies straddles an astounding array of fields and disciplines and produces a vocabulary that is in equal parts rigorous and intuitive. This title defines what this hybrid area aims to do, exploring our language for dealing with the qualities and modes of contemporary media.
