eXistenZ by David Cronenberg: cyber-fictions for a post-humanity

Author:

Laura Borràs Castanyer

Abstract

This article analyses David Cronenberg's film, eXistenZ, with the aim of establishing comparative territory with the world of new, electronic text forms. A second objective is to examine the enormous, creative possibilities that can already be seen within our contemporary, literary panorama yet which demand a change in sensibilities in order to adjust them to the needs of the new paradigm. It constitutes a reflection on the transformation of certain cultural habits which may allow us to develop new critical tools for analysing and comprehending this new literary step into the digital environment.
