Action, Body, Technology: A Study of Cave, “The Man Who” and Hands
To study technology opens up a possibility of reformulation of the concept and practice of the body, brain, and environment. Technology as a practice produces an encounter of the three together producing an ecology of a triadic relation. Through a conjunct study of three disciplines- philosophy (through the allegory of the cave), theatre (through Peter Brook’s The Man Who) and science (through few neurological case studies), I seek to propose that the triad is a virtual relation, and that body and virtual are allelic pairs.
