The expanded body project is a research about designing a series of robotic artifacts with the first intention of reproduce and imitate the human body gestures.
On the other hand we also look for the experimentation and generation of different types of relationships between an organic body and it’s fragmented and artificial representation.
In CINESTESIA, both bodies become a single body, a system that is defined by movement.
In CINESTESIA, the body system asks itself about it’s individual and social behaviour.
In CINESTESIA, the space becomes a place to reconfigure our body.
