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
