Edited by Roy Ascott

Within a technological context, this volume addresses contemporary theories of consciousness, subjective experience, the creation of meaning and emotion, and relationships between cognition and location. Its focus is both on and beyond the digital culture, seeking to assimilate new ideas emanating from the physical sciences as well as embracing spiritual and artistic aspects of human experience.
Developing on the studies published in Roy Ascott's successful Reframing Consciousness, the book documents the very latest work from those connected with the internationally acclaimed CAiiA-STAR centre and its conferences. Their artistic and theoretical research in new media and art includes aspects of:
• artificial life
• robotics
• technoetics
• performance
• computer music
• intelligent architecture
• telematic art

With profound insights for those in fields of Art, Media and Design – both academics and professionals &endash; this book will also provide new ideas for software designers working on material to be used by the arts community.

'An outstanding approach which addresses contemporary theory of consciousness, the creation of meaning and emotion and the mind as both the subject and the object of art.'

René Stettler, Journal of Consciousness Studies
