The video-surveillance body

An article recently published in the book “To debate the body”.

The new technologies, along with other social changing factors, introduce us in a new anthropological space; the one of the knowledge, governed by new values and another way of understanding the productivity and its relations. The media stop being a mass product to offer more information space of the connected multitudes. The audiovisual is not treated as a commodity but as an information device that the mainstream uses, first and foremost, as a video surveillance and control system. But what new possibilities arise for the narratives and artistic compositions? Let us propose an employment of the audiovisual linked to the body and the movement, in an extended dimension, generating information in real time. We link this development to Deleuze-Guattari’s schizoanalysis and the anthropological space they suggest regardless the unity of consciousness and representation.
