The body's relationship to machines and digital media, especially the face, will be addressed in this research from the perspective of technological art. The objective of the study is to investigate the artworks of Hyungkoo Lee, Lygia Clark and Sterling Crispin to assess the aesthetic and subjective consequences of using artisanal means of production, mass and digital media in the selected works. Similarly, we intend to create three-dimensional digital models and its consequent physical translation through digital manufacturing. Therefore, bibliographic research, case study of the works of artists, laboratory research and participation in conferences and exhibitions related to Art and New Media will be carried out. The study intends to contribute to the academic environment, society and arts in the discussion of emerging subjectivities in technological context.
