Abstract

Hacking the Body is a project about biosensor, wearables and performance. This research explores using the concept of hacking data to re-purpose and re-imagine biofeedback from the body. It investigates understandings of states of the body and hacking them to make new artworks such as performance, installation and visual artefacts.

These new artworks will communicate to the public new ways to engage with their bodies. There will be three ‘hacks’ that will examine representing of the biological states of the body. These hacks explore the inside of the body being hacked to be represented visually, the potential links between visual shapes of the body and the emotional states and a final hack connecting the exploration of the inside and outside of the body.
