In an age dominated by digital technology, The Body Electric explores themes of the real and virtual, the organic and artificial, moving from the world into the screen and back again. Today, computer and phone screens are fast becoming the primary places of encountering new information, effectively blurring the boundary between three-dimensional space and the two-dimensional image. The Body Electric draws from the Walker’s performing arts history and collections, including the Ruben/Bentson Moving Image Collection and the Archives & Library, to present work by an international group of artists who question how photographic, televisual, and digital media change our perceptions of the human body and everyday life.
