EGONOMICS, an exploration of the Corpsurbain. Ergonomics reinterprets contemporary urban fiction and raises the issue of the future of our bodies and cities in the digital age. EGONOMICS is a transmedia project: (1) the "Ergoconference" is a dance conference that features the body and a video installation; (2) The "Practical Guide of the Usage of the Body in Public Space" is a guide that explores how the city has shaped the body, and vice versa. As a piece of contemporary art, the challenge of Ergonomics is to expose, being part in the contemporary worry of the world as it is. In this kind of naturalized "realism" in full evolution of techno sciences and new ways of marketing, lies an elementary function of art, an amoral function - if any - incontestably necessary to the social body.
