Introduction to Co-Corporeality  – Of Humans, Machines, & Microbes
Editors: Barbara Imhof, Daniela Mitterberger, Tiziano Derme

Round table
Co-Corporeality  – Of Humans, Machines, & Microbes reflects on an FWF funded artistic research project that investigated non-verbal communication with our microbial environment through living and grown material. While the book was an in-depth, multidisciplinary exploration of how humans can engage sensorically with their microbial environment, the panel discussion will further extend the inquiry of Co-Corporeality into viewpoints from media studies, choreography, architecture and design research. The panel will begin with a discussion on the cultural and scientific relevance of observing our environment at different scales in order to understand ecological relations and co-corporealities.

Co-Corporeality

Co-Corporeality addresses responsive spaces in the era of biomediality with the aim to establish an interaction between a human and a living material. We are specifically interested in developing a responsive environment within an architectural space that interacts, learns, grows and decays in relation to human presence and behaviour.
