The Body/Nature connection refers to nature as a body, something akin to an organism, but also to the body, our body as a sensor, part of nature and immersed in it: an interface with the rest of nature connecting us, linking us and transforming our relation to it. This relation, this communication is part of what defines us as humans, as animals and as natural. This group will try to explore the possibilities of manipulating life, nature and our own nature to express awareness and concepts close to the idea of nature’s identity and our own in present times.
