    We’re very proud to present the Hack the Body theme in the 4th edition of the Baltan Quarterly. We would like to thank everyone involved including our partners and collaborators. This edition comes with contributions by Flora Lysen about the origins of kissing her best friend, inspired by the E.E.G. Kiss by Karen Lancel and Hermen Maat; writings by Chris Salter on his visions of how we might become more aware of the increasing data surrounding us; Marco Altini reveals how wearable technology improved his life; Marco Donnarumma elaborates on the dissolving gaps between human and machines, while the interview with Gaelle Dhooghe gives us a feel for “flow”, in her telling of how classical musi- cians were submitted to a research trajectory by using EEG headsets; and finally Hester Swaving for her piece on the travelling installation WE ARE DATA and the relationship between privacy, awareness and technology in their project.

    Baltan Quarterly created together with designer Eric de Haas and co-edited with Jane Hardjono, is a fresh newspaper entirely devoted to presenting a mix of in-depth reports, interviews, discussions and essays.  Get your copy at NatLab, read the online version on ISSUU or download the PDF.
