The Transreal: Political Aesthetics of Crossing Realities

In my recent book, The Transreal, I consider how our bodies and identities are distributed across communications technologies, our faces are being served to people by computers on Facebook and we send our thoughts out on twitter for people around the world to respond to in real time. Now that augmented, mixed, and alternate realities are being used in art, games, advertising, entertainment, they are increasingly part of our
everyday lives. Our bodies are no longer limited by our skin and our physical potential, but are increasingly part of networked ecologies and multiple realities. I have described our new condition of identites that extend across
realitles as Transreal, starting with the experience of crossing genders and thinking about how we are crossing realities. Much of my art work has involved mixed reality, augmented reality and alternate reality practices.
