Abstract:
The Web-art www.corpos.org by Reaserch Group Corpos Informáticos has been developed since 1996. In 2002 the Web site was completely upgraded. Its research seeks Internet’s technical specificities concerning artistic creation. The Home page is composed of six entries, each one exploring the Web’s possibilities. www.corpos.org/folds discusses the concept of linearity, of (e)volution. Once the site is unveiled it becomes unedited; each visit infinite in itself (venue at FILE 2000); www.corpos.org/telepresence and www.corpos.org/telepresence2 (2002)introduces the Group’s research in telepresence performance ( Corpos Informáticos a pioneer of this artistic language in Brazil); www.corpos.org/quecorpo reflects on the “ideal” contemporary body; www.corpos.org/papers have texts in Portuguese, English and French.
