Book Description

March 31 2006 0415970164 978-0415970167 1
Bodies in Code explores how our bodies experience and adapt to digital environments. Cyberculture theorists have tended to overlook biological reality when talking about virtual reality, and Mark B. N. Hansen's book shows what they've been missing. Cyberspace is anchored in the body, he argues, and it's the body--not high-tech computer graphics--that allows a person to feel like they are really "moving" through virtual reality. Of course these virtual experiences are also profoundly affecting our very understanding of what it means to live as embodied beings.

Hansen draws upon recent work in visual culture, cognitive science, and new media studies, as well as examples of computer graphics, websites, and new media art, to show how our bodies are in some ways already becoming virtual.

1.0 out of 5 stars academic masturbation March 29 2010
By parker jennings - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is unnecessarily wordy. Throughout the book Hansen flexes his academic lexicon and takes several pages to make a point that could be made in one paragraph with simple language. His target audience seems to be pompous intellectuals. This book is not accessible for artist or students and I found it painful to read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Academic contentless twoddle Sept. 6 2010
By Wordsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Never has a truer word been spoken, I agree with the reviewer below completely - this attrocious book really is absolutly utterly worthless contentless nonsense - avoid like the plague!
