This volume developed from the studies published in Roy Ascott's highly successful Reframing Consciousness documenting the very latest research from those connected with the CAiiA-STAR centre and its associated conferences. Their work embodies artistic and theoretical research in new media and telematics including aspects of artificial life, robotics, technoetics, performance, computer music and intelligent architecture, to growing international acclaim. Within a technological context, these chapters address contemporary theories of consciousness, subjective experience and meaning. The focus is both on and beyond the digital culture, assimilating new ideas from the physical sciences whilst embracing spiritual and artistic aspects of human experience.
