Have we caught up with our future bodies? What is to be one with our future bodies? How will the future effect our body politic?

An interdisciplinary summit for academics, students, thinkers, designers, bloggers, performers and practitioners, this symposium addresses the theme of “Future Bodies”.

It will explore the aesthetic appreciation of the fashioned body through its modification and its performance - as communication tool and the body as a whole.

Current changes in technology, its impact and relationships with visual manifestations of the body are central to the theme of this one-day symposium.

Themes: Deviant bodies, makeovers and perfect surfaces, perfect bodies, transcending the body, uncovering and hiding of the body, technology and the body, body place / space, the cosmetic body, virtual bodies, fashion/cosmetic production, language and the body, the gendered body and bodily restriction.
