Speaker: STELARC

STELARC, world-renowned performance artist and Distinguished Research Fellow at the School of Design and Art (SODA), Curtin University, Perth, discusses his recent work. STELARC has visually probed and acoustically amplified his body. He has made three films of the inside of his body. Between 1976-1988 he completed 26 body suspension performances with hooks into the skin. He has used medical instruments, prosthetics, robotics, Virtual Reality systems, the Internet and biotechnology to engineer intimate and involuntary interfaces with the body. He explores Alternate Anatomical Architectures with augmented and extended body constructs.
