Summary/Abstract: Jacek Wachowski investigates transformations in human perception whose beginning he traces back to Doppler's discovery of ways of perceiving light waves. The Austrian scholar's observation irreversibly negated the relationships that had theretofore reigned between the sensorium and the cogito, which had been the axis of the narrative of human nature. In Wachowski's opinion, this should be understood in terms of the emergence of post-humanism. In exploring the experiment of the sensory loop of feedback (which is able to send perceptual data between a subject and the objects surrounding him/her in an interactive manner) he recalls numerous experiments made by artists and engineers. Wachowski believes that, as a material for making art, technology became a way of performing reality, creating new representations, and a method for interacting with them in numerous ways.
