The body is what allows this person to operate and become aware in the world. I’ve always been envious of dancers and gymnasts who use their bodies both as a medium of expression and also a means of experience.
The body becomes a site of action, interaction and experimentation. Using this particular body means bypassing ethical issues that some of the projects and performances would generate, if they were performed on other bodies.
And of course there is the realization that we are no longer merely biological bodies.
Rather, the body has become a chimera, a combination of meat, metal and code.
