Bodies in Code explores how bodies adventure and adapt to electronic environments. Cyberculture theorists have tended to miss organic fact while speaking approximately digital truth, and Mark B. N. Hansen's booklet exhibits what they have been lacking. our on-line world is anchored within the physique, he argues, and it is the body--not high-tech computing device graphics--that permits someone to believe like they're particularly "moving" via digital truth. after all those digital stories also are profoundly affecting our very knowing of what it capability to reside as embodied beings.

Hansen attracts upon fresh paintings in visible tradition, cognitive technology, and new media reports, in addition to examples of special effects, web pages, and new media artwork, to teach how bodies are in many ways already changing into virtual.
