Abstract:
As late capitalism seeps further into the everyday, the body becomes a site of contestation and resistance. Digital technologies provide models for new forms of embodiment and identity which function more frictionlessly in this framework while simultaneously reframing these notions entirely. In a space of self branding and self-surveillance, how has the notion of self shifted? In the sleepless terrain of always on capitalism and 24/7 circulation, how is presence modulated? From accelerationist immateriality to fleshy incompatibility, these recent works explore how digital embodiment operates today.
