Full Bio: 

Eddie Lohmeyer is a Ph.D. student in the Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media program at North Carolina State University. He is currently exploring new ways in which a body interacts with and generates sensory and perceptual experiences through digital cinema from a Deleuzian perspective. To this end, his interests also comprise the study of affect experienced by a spectator when engaging with forms of gaming, remix culture, and new media art.

His work explores post-humanist constructions of a body at the intersection of film studies, game studies, and affect theory.  He is particularly interested in how a body experiences new intensities, sensations, and perceptual events through digital cinematic technologies and how flows of affect, desire, and capital within the 21st century organize new forms of subjectivity through a viewer’s active engagement with forms of digital cinema and interactive games. Recently, his work has examined the affective sensations generated from a user’s interaction with the mobility of the GoPro camera, and how a user’s experience as a camera-body circulates affect through the distribution of online videos that display the immediacy of a user’s actions through subjective point-of-view images of the world. Likewise, he is also passionate about the use of critical making and production as a means to explore the complexities of affect. He is continuing to work collaboratively with colleague Jay Kirby on a digital performance work called The Body-Sonic that considers a monist ontology for sound studies through shifting milieus between the interiority-exteriority of the body, audience, and environment using a constructed sound suit with electromyography sensors that transform conscious (and autonomic) muscle activity into synthesized sound.
