The Hybronaut Affair: A Ménage of Art, Technology, and Science

Laura Beloff

Research output: Conference Article in Proceeding or Book/Report chapterBook chapterResearchpeer-review


Instead of considering wearable technology devices as prosthetic tools that aim to aid and enhance the human body, the article investigates how technology impacts our perception of the world and a human (body). It sees a human as a construct of multiplicity of relations within a heterogeneous network; an entity that is enhanced by technological, wearable devices.
The author claims that artistic approaches in the field of wearable technology propose an experimental and holistic approach to human design and that these kinds of artistic experiments are, in a sense, exercises helping us to adjust for future challenges and possibilities concerning the human.
