Over the past decade, new technologies have influenced a vast epistemological shift that has transformed notions of performativity and representation in the arts. Mediation has challenged both spectators' and performers' conventions of corporeality, cognition, and perception. Centering on contemporary synaesthetic and multimodal works, Through the Prism of the Senses examines new theory and practice in body-based arts and contemporary performance. Three main chapters present three distinct strands of methodological enquiry, one from each author, creating a work that resonates with artistic and philosophical enquiry. This book is a vital contribution to discussions surrounding research creation and the body in relation to digital media, highlighting the ways in which new technologies confront the sensate, somatic body. A French-language version is to be published by Presses de l'Universite du Quebec (ISBN: 9782760551480). This includes additional chapters in English by Erin Manning, David Howes, Luc Vanier, and Elizabeth Johnson. A Spanish-language version is to be published by Centro Editoral Universidad de Caldas.
