Addressing the changes effectuated by virtual media, this essay examines forms of community and embodiment. Drawing a correlation between the mediated body and the logic of cellular evolution, I hope to clarify ways in which virtual environments have changed the meaning of having a body, and how that body relates to a sense of collectivity.

I am a media theorist and artist. My work takes an interdisciplinary dimension, negotiating theory and praxis in a range of media. Currently, my research addresses the social and political aspects of art and media, particularly referencing changes in technology and globalization.
