Virtual Materiality for cognitive experiments in art and science

The development of interactive simulations in immersive environments has brought physicality into virtual images, and has made users experience these environments through several sensorial modalities. Thus, many performance works in dance or theater have investigated intuitive interactions with virtual matters in new cognitive contexts. Similarly, the body virtualization through its augmentation or its digital representation raises various questions on virtual materiality embodiment and provides stimulating perspectives for art-science collaborations.
