Corporeal Cinema: Tactility and Proprioception in Participatory Art
Raivo Kelomees / Estonia
Estonian Academy of Arts
In this article I analyze performances, artworks and installations in audiovisual and contemporary art which emphasize tactile and corporeal experiences. This trend can be observed in technological art, cinema and large visual attractions. I aim to demonstrate that due to technical developments and new tools, the possibilities now exist for new aesthetic experiences in which the body's position and its biological reactions play a decisive role.
