Abstract: Able, potentially, to be characterised simultaneously as descriptions, representations, performances and technologies, this paper focuses on the genesis and fate of two newly created pedagogical tools. The first, a new form of interactive anatomical scan, the second, a library of live feed DVDs of paediatric cardiac operations have recently been created at Great Ormond Street Hospital for use by surgeons in domestic and virtual environments. In here exploring the status of these new entities I pose a series of enframing ontological questions: Are descriptions always textual or linguistic — or can they be communicated visually?
Can descriptions ever arrive in the world free of interpretation?
How can describing or re-presenting a lived bodily experience in a new technological or performative mode make knowledge of that experience available for wider use? How are conceptions of value transformed through this process of transmogrification? Bio: Bronwyn Parry is an economic and cultural geographer whose primary interests lie in investigating the way human-environment relations are being recast by technological, economic and regulatory changes. Her special interests include the rise and operation of the life sciences industry, informationalism, the commodification of life forms, bio-ethics, and the emergence of intellectual property rights, indigenous rights and other regulatory knowledge systems.
Book Review: Trading the Genome: Investigating the Commodification of Bio-information
The case in point is the Raelian Religion, which finds its culturally natural environment in the gaps between social orders, and within a network-fused modernity. Often, however, these send conflicting messages about the Raelian understandings as a system of beliefs. Professor Battaglia, who received her doctorate from Cambridge University in the field of Social Anthropology in , specializes in issues of person and self, faith-based science, culture and power, and expressive culture. Her current project is a collection of essays from the field, Visits: An Anthropological Discourse.

One needs to approach her recent work with Raelian Religion in the spirit of serious play. Abstract: We lack anything like a sophisticated discourse for talking about — describing — the phenomenology of aesthetic experience. Historically this can be explained in a number of ways. This paper will not dwell for long on the failings of this skeptical and at times antagonistic historical tradition since it sets out to proceed from an example of aesthetic experience.

This will provide me with an opportunity to investigate some beginning moves in a descriptive architecture for aesthetic forms and, at the same time, present something of the inner life of a particular artwork.
