Hi, Isabelle --You may want to also posit these queries on the very active dance- tech social network: http://www.dance-tech.net/ There are quite a few discussion threads, profiles, images and videos posted there - and you can post your own as well.
You'll probably find it to be helpful. cheers, ~Josephine On Mar 6, 2008, at 5:13 PM, Isabelle Choinière wrote:

Like Stellarc is not doing that ) :- the mcLuhan approach /dualist (obsolete body, augmented body)- the Deleuze approach (more a network preoccupation, aften there is a distanciation relation inbetween the production of media and the body)- The interconnectivity approach (from the philosophy oriental)Let me know who has some of the information I am looking for.
