CYBER-ATHLETE. One Video Piece Exhibition by Vitalij Červiakov and Danutė Gambickaitė

2019/12/22

Film “Cyber-Athlete“ reconsiders the concepts of cyber-athletics and e-sports. How is computer game culture and virtuality altering human body? What are the new features of a (cyber) athletic body? How are they developed? How are they influencing the notion of athletic body and sex. Where else could such cyber-athletic body be used? And, finally, how do our bodies and consciousness manage to synchronise with computer game technology?
