Ultrabodyoffers a new and intriguing take on the body through a cross-disciplinary series of products traversing art, architecture, design and fashion. Investigating the relationship between body and space and the infinite ways of relating among people and the things and environment that surround them, the book explores 208 different types of body-related objects, from the most obvious to the more enigmatic and experimental. Published to coincide with an exhibition at Castello Sforzesco in Milan, Ultrabodyincludes works pitched elusively between art and design, such as a "Pre-Handshake Handshake Device" and a "hospitable raincoat" (for one, plus a guest), from artists and designers as varied as Vito Acconci, Atelier Van Lieshout, Marc Behrens, Camille Cortet, Salvador Dalí, Jackson Hong, Carlo Mollino, Bruno Munari, Ernesto Neto, Meret Oppenheim, Marc Sadler, Ettore Sottsass, Philippe Starck, Stelarc and many others.
