Really interesting discussion of Stelarc—and the disjuncture between his professed aims and what he is actually doing. I like the attempt to situate imaging technologies in relation to performance of identity and performance art. She takes a broad view of "imaging technologies" which I find interesting as well.
I'm a fan of Amelia Jones' writing, generally, "Body Art/Peforming the Subject" is my favorite.

Best read of the year, and possibly even best book of Jones' career. The architecture/urban space chapter is an essential read for anyone with an interest in Los Angeles
