The Mediated Body Lab
Directed by media artist and researcher Daniel Landau and Prof. Doron Friedman, The Mediated-Body Lab is an interdisciplinary research laboratory aimed at creating a bridge between humanities, arts, and sciences to study the complex relationship between body and technology. At the core of our investigation is the impact of the human-machine co-evolution on both a social level and the personal one. Addressing the complexity of the topic requires multi-disciplinary efforts and in-depth cross-fertilization between theory, methodologies, and practices. Typical outcomes of our work may take shape in the form of academic papers, art installations, performances, workshops, and conferences.
Key themes of investigation:
Virtual Embodiment and Subjectivity
XR technologies for social change
Empirical Philosophy of Technology
