Title:

    Proprioceptive sense in an art installation: AmputationBox

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    AmputationBox is an interactive art installation that blurs boundaries between virtual, networked and physical worlds. AmputationBox is also simply a box with a hole on the top. Participants can put their hands into the hole. Every object poked into the hole is visually amputated and redisplayed as virtual organism: creeping or flying flesh. The amputated flesh parts are displayed simultaneously in two different locations: the physical installation and the online website (www.amputationbox.com).
