Maria Christou is a Ph.D. candidate and teaching assistant at Grenoble University. Her work deals with the issues brought up by the use of digital technologies to the cognition of the artistic experience. She examines how the new properties and relations between the participants of an interactive performance affect the embodiment of the situation. To do so she builds a methodology for the enactive analysis of such situations and she describes embodiment parameters by conducting qualitative analyses of users’ experience. This process is followed by the developpement of indicative multisensory projects in order to validate the procedures.
