International Conference Proceedings
Andrej Radman & Stavros Kousoulas (Eds.)
What is the relation between the living organism of the human body and the machine technologies applied in the medical field? Mapping the shifting thresholds between organic and inorganic, the innate and the acquired, is the focus of this slender but rich publication from the trans-disciplinary Critical and Clinical Cartographies Conference at TU Delft. Organized around the themes of embodiment, technology, care and design, the conference participants rethink medical and design pedagogies in the context of the affective and the digital to explore relations between the body and machine technologies used in medical treatment and architectural design. Essays dissecting the influences of technology, cybernetic theories, digital and social media, ecological theories of architecture, capitalism and human behavior make for a fascinating discussion in the context of the fields of medicine and architecture. Contributors include architectural theorist Andrej Radman, architects Stavros Kousoulas, Robert Alexander Gorny, Dulmini Perera, Arthur Waisblat, media and cultural theorists Katharina D. Martin and Halbe Hessel Kuipers.
