|Virtual Physical Bodies|
|Tuesday 14 – Sunday 19 September 1999

This workshop and symposium focused on the development and synthesis of the virtual and physical body in dance and new technologies. A four-day practical workshop took place followed by summary discussions on the final day of this event. Small groups debated issues that had been raised and produced three summary observations and three points of action, these were then shared within the entire group. The key themes that were examined were: participating and spectating in new media arts; consciousness; telematics/presence; methodologies of making and co-authorship/multi-skilling.
