2017, Book Section, The Oxymoron of Touch: The Tactile Perception of Hybrid Reality through Material Feedbacks In: Broadhurst, Susan and Price, Sara, (eds.) Digital Bodies. Palgrave Studies in Performance and Technology . Palgrave Macmillian, Springer Nature, London, pp. 129-143. ISBN 978-1-349-95240-3

Abstract or Description:

This chapter illustrates the concepts of ‘oxymoron materiality’ and ‘oxymoron tectonics’ through a process based on feedback loops between human creativity and machines. Through touch I describe how material sensations of physical objects augment both digital and physical perceptions of anyone’s real, as it shapes an embodied sense of hybrid reality with touch as the interface. Machines, including 3D printers, haptic sensors and robots, participate in a dialogue with our actions, minds and memories, and contribute to the formation of the hybrid real.
