Imagine ourselves as bodies in constant expansion.

We all live in human form extended in the digital data transmission. Our living and working spaces are cybernated. In the virtual area, we are accustomed to gathering and exchanging information,  holding and trading belongings, selling ourselves.

Ideas of our corporeality are shaped by the ideologies we live in. Culture defines the ways we move, in what we believe, how we crave to look, and our understanding of social norms and interactions.

We intertwine with other human beings reciprocating the contents of our personality – knowledge, habits, thoughts, and emotions. Our bodies extend in time, passing on cellular memories to future generations and descending from past ones.

We are bodies in constant change of state, shape, and meaning.

In Transmission questions corporeality and the ways in which it is formed/deformed through time, virtual and physical space, how it intertwines with ideologies. Artworks explore bodies in digital engagement as an extension of human relations and acknowledge human perception that enables pleasure, pain, and spending time in spaces of imagination.

Gathered authors study movement semiotics in different environments and play with the notion of materiality to reshape the relation of the body and surroundings. They imagine gestures as tools of resistance and pull back the stretched boundaries of our bodies that everyday life expects of us.
