I have to admit that I have a problem with Stelarc's work largely because I
see his body as a passive object, a machine, that is being manipulated by
the host (the technology), rather than the other way around. It seems to
me that Stelarc's work is rooted not in the physical body at all, but in
the machines or networks he uses to robotocize his limbs and muscles.
