During the 19th century, a series of scientific approaches to the physiological study from physics, such as the studies of peripheral vision, binocular vision, retinal post-images, the study of light and optics, contributed to the emergence of a new model of visual representation and brought scientific knowledge closer to the population, and in turn, provided reference points for the analysis of the relationships between the new postulates of science and visual arts to bring various developments to the space of everyday life technological.

"Corporeal narratives Cyborg, science fiction and realities"

This work investigates the first science fiction narratives in which the human being seeks to improve his body, new abilities, other organs or senses. Today the characters in these texts seem to come out of the books and inhabit our reality. This article also studies how narratives are configured through the body mediated by technology, with a review of performance artists where the artificial and the organic are interwoven in a creative subject; specifically, the work of the artists is reviewed. Artists Stelarc and Neil Harbisson show technology as an expansion of the body and, given its modifications, generate a new look at contemporary aesthetic practices.

Subject area: Humanities - Communication - Engineering –Technology.

This article deals with showing the development of a voice device with artificial intelligence that allows generating interactivity with users, within a multiplatform strategy, for the appropriation of the archive of the Colombian poet León de Greiff. In this case, a multimodal interface was designed emphasizing interaction through voice, which integrates semantic analysis with social commands and a multimodal user interface, embodying four of the multiple authorial instances called "other selves", characteristic of Greiff's work. The design methodology used achieved the combination of software development with multimodal creation aspects, through what, in the context of this research, is called database poetics and, on the other hand, poetic databases. . This mixture is described through the systematization of the design experience. Together, this device and the theoretical-methodological developments presented below are part of the transmedia project called La Fanfarria Farragosa, from the perspective of transmedia design for experiences of appropriation of cultural archives.
