Transmission in Motion

About Transmission in Motion

Moving images, motion capture, virtual mobility, mobile media, haptic interfaces, intelligent objects and robotics foreground the performativity of practices of transmission and the materiality of mediation. Technological developments reconfigure our senses, turn archives into ‘dynarchives,’ and set knowledge cultures in motion. Movement, gesture, and embodied interaction are also at the crux of new insights into (embodied) practices of teaching and learning, creation and performance. This centrality of process, materiality, and performativity requires new concepts and methods, opens up a transdisciplinary terrain for research and development, and offers new possibilities for cross-sector collaborations between the humanities, sciences and the arts, as well as with societal and industry partners.

This is the terrain of Transmission in Motion.
