Book Description

This study is concerned with phenomenology and ethics of digital art practices and with those issues pertaining to the ecosystem "performer-technology-audience".

The focus is on art performances and art practices that centre their narratives around the use of, and interaction with, digital technologies. Giuseppe Torre engages with underground cultures such as Free and Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) and its ties with art discourse. The discussion is informed by various philosophical discourses and media theories, with a focus on how such ideas connect back to the existing literature in performance studies.

Replete with examples of artwork and practices, this book will be of great interest to students and scholars of theatre and performance studies, art and technology.
