    Maria Almena



    The main focus of this paper is to explore the re-contextualisation of the concept of transcendence as an altered state of experience within digital art performances. Is there a transcendental art movement in the contemporary digital art scene and does it exist in response to the lack of emotional and spiritual connection in general Western Society? How could we use our contemporary mediums, tools and techniques to induce an altered state that can have beneficial effects for artists, audiences and our society as a whole?
