Promotional Information

Salter's Entangled is a rich source book that presents the relationship between performance art and technology in a unique and broad perspective. The manifold artworks described in this overwhelming volume testify to the continuity of artistic exploration throughout the twentieth century and show how contemporary, digitally based practices are rooted in the lasting curiosity about what it means to be human in an age of ever-evolving machine systems. -- Andreas Broeckmann, art theorist and curator, Berlin The routes we usually take to tell our stories about media, architecture, embodiment, and movement are challenged here by all-terrain travel: to warp, sing, pixilate, fly. Cross-medial engagement in a wide variety of performance practices is carefully articulated, skillfully performed, smartly theorized, and rigorously historicized, helping us shake off the habitual media-versus-live, or human-versus-machine divide to tangle our sensibilities in far more interesting claims. This is an important book. -- Rebecca Schneider, Brown University Entangled stays true to its name. It is one of those rare books that builds networks and bridges - between the body and technology, the material and the ephemeral, thinking and making. -- William Forsythe, Artistic Director, The Forsythe Company, Frankfurt Germany
