Roberto Diodato - Author
Justin L. Harmon - Translator
Silvia Benso - Revised and Edited by
John Protevi - Foreword by

Reconfigures classic aesthetic concepts in relation to the novelty introduced by virtual bodies.
Arguing that the virtual body is something new—namely, an entity that from an ontological perspective has only recently entered the world—Roberto Diodato considers the implications of this kind of body for aesthetics.
