Inhalt

Staging Space explores trends in interdisciplinary research at the intersection of architecture, new media, information technology, and performing arts, and it is based upon a research project at Sinlab, an experimental laboratory jointly run by five universities in Switzerland, Germany, and China.

Divided into four richly illustrated sections, the book explores the topics of kinetics, audibility, visibility, and boundaries, which delve into aspects such as movement, interaction, and body tracking; electronic dispositives in acoustic space; the visibility in stage performance; and the performers and their audience. The international contributors also look at experiments by performance artists and computer scientists that explore the ways in which art and technology can create new spatial relations on the stage and within other spaces of performance.

With contributions by Adolphe Appia, Christopher Balme, Reyner Banham, Alex Barchiesi, Colette Baumgartner, Mario Carpo, Mark Coniglio, Cathy van Eck, Sabine von Fischer, Karmen Franinovic, Jeffrey Huang, Antoine Picon, Anton Rey, Chris Salter, Selena Savic, Paul Scheerbart, Andrew Sempere, Olga Touloumi, and Shih-Yuan Wang.
