The Unfamiliar Body –– Web Thesis
Can a single digital image of my body call into question the perception I have of myself?
Guided by this question, "The Unfamiliar Body" unfolds as a speculation on the way the digital representation of the human body can affect our own self-recognition.
Behind the dissertation’s surface there is no presumption nor will to bring a scientific and objective analysis. Thus, design wise, the project outcome offers new insights into the possibilities emerging at the intersection of programming and graphic design in order to develop structured narrative experiences that can stimulate awareness of perception by engaging and challenging the user. Indeed, from a social viewpoint, the desired goal lies in the development of a growing critical consciousness concerning the value of humans’ physicality in the digital age.
