The connexion between digital body and the Universe

Abstract : Researches in Art, Science and Technology fields, existing in the artwork performances of Moon Ribas and Kitsou Dubois, promote the body ecology movement, looking for new relationships between the body and its environment. Both artists are experimenting on their own bodies in order to rethink the limits. This approach raises the question of new digital technologies impact on the human body in contemporary society. Cyborg artist Moon Ribas promotes endogenous relationship with nature. She feels every earthquake on the planet, by a sensor permanently grafted under her skin. Nature makes then the artist's body move and interact. In the other hand, the French choreographer Kitsou Dubois establishes an exogenous relationship with nature. Indeed, in her performance, body is liberated from any gravity. Therefore, it is by overcoming nature that the body move and interact. Our article aims to analyze the corporeal ecology in each artistic movement detailed above by considering the relation that the body entertain with the Universe enriched by technologies.
