Wiretap 7.11 "i-Body: motion - ctrl - space" focused on how the body can play a pivotal role within technological settings.

Navigation systems in virtual environments are increasingly becoming based on 'motion tracking' (the registration of movement). There is quite some experimentation with interfaces which feel more natural or direct to the user than the traditional mouse/keyboard interface (the so-called command interface). The quotidian activities of the body, such as walking, breathing or the blinking of the eye, lie at the base of the research and development of bodily-controlled interfaces.

The topic was examined from various angles, including perception, manipulation, control and participation.
