Tears in the Connective Tissue

  • Joan Truckenbrod
Part of the Springer Series on Cultural Computing book series (SSCC)


This article gives an artist’s response to the challenges of the digital age where the connective tissue linking the natural world with the virtual world through the body and mind is disjoint. Her working palette includes the underwater world, represented by the light patterns on the water that project themselves onto objects that she places in the water. These worlds that she creates become womb-like, evoking transformation and renewal.
