Here / There : Telepresence, Touch, and Art at the Interface (Hardcover) (Kris Paulsen)
about this item
Here/There: Telepresence, Touch, and Art at the Interface is a critical, political and aesthetic assessment of telepresence technologies, from the emergence of video and the interactive computer interface in 1968 to present uses of networked telerobots and drones. The book addresses the pressing issues and effects attached to these new technologies though the lens of contemporaneous artistic experiments. The artworks examined in propose ways of dealing with the ethical, existential, and phenomenological effects of extending our senses and our agency across space and time.
