    Data Body Banking: Understanding Post Biological Identity through Embodied Mixed Reality Art

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2015)

    London, UK, 7 - 9 July 2015


    Julian Stadon


    This demonstration will present recently completed research for a practice based PhD that explores the psycho-topographical relationship between bodies of matter, embodied data and data bodies, presenting a contribution to the field of mixed reality art, with a particular focus on post-biological identity. It will consist of the presentation of a body of practical outcomes that aim to provide a new contextual positioning, of current discourses relating to this field, in order to shift its focus to networked mixed reality art and post-biological identity.

    The research aims to propose a new practical framework for understanding post-biological identity through the creation of art, made in response to relevant discourses that focus specifically on networked mixed reality, embodiment and personal data archival. This is achieved through developing real-time data transfer systems that bridge representations of embodied data and data bodies in mixed reality applications. This process involved significant analysis of current technical and theoretical examples, in order develop a range of solutions that engaged the viewer with related practical and theoretical discourse.
