Abstract

This paper reviews the first “Consciousness Reframed” conference. A number of artists’ works in media such as virtual reality and interactive installations are discussed, and various issues relating to “technoetic” artworks are raised. These issues include questions such as the potentially dehumanizing nature of technology, the transcendent states claimed for cyberspace, the nature of immersion, and aspects of the problem of consciousness. The author offers some suggestions regarding how technoetic art might tackle such issues.
