This photo-essay explores artworks and technology that deploy touch - either literally or virtually - in order to interrogate the nature of contemporary being and meaning. They do this by engaging viewers in a virtual deconstruction of their own embodied being - their positioning in space/time; their incorporation of values, beliefs and attitudes articulated by affective practices that engage them bodily; and their reconstitution within a technological assemblage that includes their own bodies and the technologies they use in everyday life. © 2011 Taylor & Francis.
