The term Digital Performance can usually be defined to consist of all types of performance in which computer technologies have taken on the main role rather than an auxiliary one in the content, techniques, aesthetics or the delivery forms. Digital performance will usually explore the representations of the subliminal, dreams and fantasy worlds (in Wikipedia).
The body as an artistic concept suffers from the late 50's a release in various directions. While some works the idea of unification of art and life (John Cage, Joseph Beuyes, Fluxus), other performance artists develop a design regardless of causality, consider the human body as an aesthetic material, a projection surface and indicator of mental states. The video as a technician medium becomes a constructive element of the action: the recording, such as the transmission of data on a monitor, enable dematerialization of the real body and its radiance in new images (Vito Acconci, Bruce Nauman).
