    Metabody will be a laboratory and observatory of cultural diversity that will highlight the importance of non-verbal communication and embodied expressions as a primary substrate of naturecultures. The project will generate an understanding of the threats posed by the homogenising processes of globalisation and Information Society. Furthermore the project will produce new cultural, communicational and technological paradigms through interdisciplinary developments in new media and the arts, which foreground embodied expressions and interactions.

    The project will elaborate a critique of the tendencies of both homogenisation and preemption (adaptation to the new, assimilation of the new and programmed diversification) that information technologies operate in perceptions, affects, and subjective formations, where the irreducible and changing differences of embodied expressions and relations are reduced to linear patterns of simulation and standardised processes of media contagion, within a mechanisict tradition where movement is reduced to measurable coordinates.

    At the same time new concepts and pragmatics of space-time, relations, corporeality, cognition, perception and affection will be elaborated for new technological paradigms exceeding machanicism and computation, that will take into account movement as multiplicities of intracorporeal sensations and affections irreducible to localizable points and trajectories, to measurable coordinates of space-time or form-pattern.
