Dissolving the Boundary between the Body and the Artwork

Released from material substance, digital art allows our bodies to become more immersed in the artwork than ever before. The medium can be transformative and the intentional movement and behavior of people can cause visual changes in the artwork.

With immersion of the body into the artwork, the boundary between the self and the artwork becomes ambiguous. And, through that experience, the boundary between the self and the world begins to disappear. Because our presence and the presence of others can cause change in the shared world of the artwork, it is possible that we will feel ourselves and others meld with the world and become one body.
